To serve as an ancillary, advisory function with respect to the UAH administration in the area of staff personnel matters, and to do so in a positive, constructive way.

Purpose of the Staff Senate

The UAH Staff Senate was established in 1992 to provide:


  • a forum for the exchange of ideas
  • a resource for evaluating proposals
  • a mechanism for expressing suggestions and concerns


The Staff Senate has been recognized by the University administration as a representative body of eligible non-faculty staff.

The Staff Senate responds to issues presented by Staff Senate members and committees, the University administration, the student government, and UAH staff and employees. Communications from the Staff Senate are brought to the attention of the University administration by submission to the Vice President of Finance and Administration.

We work to promote better understanding, cooperation, and communication within the UAH campus community for the benefit and betterment of all.


General session meetings are conducted on the third Wednesday of each month unless previously arranged due to scheduling needs of the Senate. All staff members are welcome to attend Staff Senate meetings. You may also contact the Staff Senate Representative for your division, or one of the at-large members, to address issues that may arise between monthly meetings. Please also feel free to submit comments through our Staff Senate Inquiry Form.


Tell us how we can better serve the UAH staff community. Send your suggestions, opinions and feedback regarding Staff Senate activities to the Senate's Staff Relations Officer at staffsenate@uah.edu.
