UTSA Staff Senate

UTSA Staff Senate


Hi Folks! Below is a link for volunteers to sign up and help with Leadership Takeover happening on September 28th: https://utsa.campuslabs.com/engage/submitter/form/start/342507

Also, if you are interested in submitting a proposal to present, the deadline is this Sunday: https://utsa.campuslabs.com/engage/submitter/form/start/317632
Thank you for removing me.

Welcome to the UTSA Staff Senate group! The Staff Council, in keeping with the mission of UTSA, is an advisory body through which eligible Staff members may convey information and make recommendations to the President regarding interests and concerns of Staff.

The Staff Council is charged by the President and by the Board of Regents of the University of Texas System, with the goal of continually improving university operations and the well being of UTSA's staff. The Staff Council is charged to address matters of general concern to the university community, and in particular to staff members of UTSA, and is not intended to supplant existing procedures for addressing individual grievances.

Operating as usual



Thank you to our UTSA Staff Senate outgoing chair, Brandy, and our incoming chair, Damaris. Your leadership and vision make an important difference on our campus!


Just a reminder of who we are and how we support our Roadrunners! Visit our site for more info ✨✨
