Classified Senate

Classified Senate promotes the valuable contributions made by classified professionals in creating an environment that will lead to the greatest level of student success. The Senate encourages the exchange of ideas, understanding, and cooperation between classified staff, faculty, administrators, and students in the best interest of enriching the educational environment. We are here to help you meet those goals. Comments and suggestions are always welcome and your participation is greatly appreciated. Classified Senate ensures the concerns and successes of the staff on campus are shared.


The third Wednesday of each month, in the Library Conference Room from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. While all classified professionals are welcome to attend, you must secure your administrator's approval.

If you have an item you would like placed on the agenda, you may either notify your area rep or contact Susi Nitzel or Virginia Beamer.
