Recognizing the staff of the University of Oklahoma, Norman campus, have a sincere interest in and highest regard for the continuing goals, purposes and functions of the University of Oklahoma, it is the mission of the Staff Senate to seek the active representation and involvement of staff in the affairs of the University.
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) staff are represented by the Hourly Employees Council. Exempt (monthly) staff are represented by one of the following: the Informational Staff Association, the Organizational Staff Council, or the Administrative 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.)
