About Staff Senate

UNCW's Staff Senate aims to foster a spirit of unity, pride and cooperation among staff. As an advisory board to the Chancellor, senators represent and advocate for all SHRA and EHRA non-faculty voices and support the university's mission. Staff Senate meetings are held monthly, and staff are encouraged to attend in-person or through Zoom.
