A Message from the Chair

I am fortunate to work alongside the wonderful staff that we have on our beautiful campus.  As I begin my seventh year at UNCW, I am honored to serve in the role of Staff Senate Chair. 

The Staff Senate represents and advocates for SHRA and EHRA Non-Faculty staff by communicating directly with our Chancellor and other administration both on campus and at the state level.  In order to best represent and advocate for staff, we need to hear from you!  I would like to personally invite all staff to attend our Senate meetings, which are held on the second Wednesday of each month from 2-4 pm.  Please visit our Meetings page for meeting locations and information on our upcoming guest speakers.

If you have suggestions or issues, please share them with us by emailing me at or connect with us anonymously through our Suggestions Box.  We look forward to working with you to build on the progress that has already been made.

News for UNCW Staff

Staff Senate’s Holiday Cards for Heroes was a great success last year and we would like to continue on the tradition. We are setting up tables across campus for students, faculty and staff to take a moment and write a card to our local service members. There will be premade cards and supplies if you are creative and would like to make your own. Cards will be collected after the event and hand delivered to service members at Camp Lejeune. This year Staff Senate is partnering with Advancement for Giving Tuesday on November 29th.
