Staff Senate Strides Registration

Staff Senate Strides 2017

Staff Senate is pleased to announce the date for our 2nd annual Staff Senate Strides event! It will be held Thursday May 11, from 11am-2pm on Chancellor’s Walk.

Last year was amazing!  The majority of staff took some time out of their busy schedule to focus on their physical and mental well-being by getting outside, walking and talking with co-workers. It was more than we could have hoped for, and we could not have done it without your help!  Please take a moment to complete the registration form below if your area would like a table at the event.  If you are no longer responsible for events in your area please forward this information on to the appropriate party.   More Details Coming Soon!

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.
