Advocate Educate Appreciate

Advocate

The Staff Senate represents all classified and non-student wage employees at George Mason University.  Working closely with University administration, we address concerns that have an impact on the quality of work-life for the Mason community.  The work of the Senate is accomplished through open and continuous communication with its constituents.

Educate

The Staff Senate works collaboratively with the administration, Faculty Senate, student government, and other university departments to gather and disseminate information on behalf of our constituents.  Once common areas of concern are identified, we work to bring about change that will benefit constituencies across all Mason’s campuses.

Appreciate

With support from the administration, the Staff Senate sponsors annual staff appreciation events, the outstanding supervisor award, and participates in the employee of the month award program.  Staff recognition is paramount at Mason and the Senate works hard to foster Mason’s culture of recognition, making Mason a great place to work

Host a Table at the Fairfax Departmental Information Fair

The Staff Senate will hold a Department Information Fair on the Fairfax Campus during our Winter Staff Appreciation Event from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Thursday, February 27.

This is a great outreach opportunity for Mason departments. We hope that staff can learn more about the opportunities, services, events and other activities available to them.

Departments may participate by staffing a table at the event to distribute literature and other items to staff. During the event, we will also provide refreshments and a raffle for participants.

Complete this form, confirming your department’s intent to staff a table.  You may email the form to Amanda Corrigan, staffsenate@gmu.edu. Please submit your form by Thursday, February 6. 

Questions can be directed to Amanda Corrigan, administrative assistant for the Staff Senate, at acorrig2@gmu.edu or 703-993-4141.
