Welcome to the Norman Staff Senate!
Serving the University since 1971

    Each staff member appointed through the Norman campus is represented within the governance system by a member group. Individuals classified as non-exempt (hourly) or exempt (monthly) staff are represented by one of the following member groups: the Administrative Staff Council, the Hourly Employees Council, the Informational Staff Association, or the Organizational Staff Council. In addition to functioning as autonomous organizations, these groups choose a prescribed number of Staff Senate representatives.

     Meetings of the Senate are typically* held on the third Wednesday of each month at 1:30p.m. in the Scholars Room of the Oklahoma Memorial Union.  Staff Senate meetings are open for all staff to attend.  (*Changes to this schedule will be posted on the "Schedule" page.)
