Historical NoteReturn to Top

In the fall of 1972, The University of Montana non-academic staff elected an ad hoc committee of eight members to prepare a constitution and bylaws for an organization to represent non-academic personnel. The staff ratified the constitution and established the Staff Senate in 1974. The first Staff Senate had 16 members representing approximately 600 non-academic employees; in 2005 there were 30 members. The Staff Senate represents non-academic staff at the university and the College of Technology and serves as a liaison to the university administration and the community. Each senator represents employees from one of the five following employment classifications: professional, technical, clerical, crafts and service. Senators also represent the staff on various university and Staff Senate committees.
