Joined Mason in 2010, graduate school (2008-2010)

I love Mason because of our motto “Innovation is Tradition.” Mason fosters both individuality and diversity. Because of this, each member of the Mason community has an opportunity to grow outside of their work position and everyone’s strengths lie within not only our communal goal, but our diversity.

I joined Staff Senate in 2020.

I joined Staff Senate because after being at Mason for 10 years I decided it was time to help all of our staff not only have an individual voice on campus, but a collective voice. I want to be part of a group that fosters community, involvement, and appreciation for our staff. Mason’s staff to me is the “heart” of Mason and each voice is important and should be heard. My hope is that I can serve as a voice for our staff to ensure that the staff’s role is valued just as much as our student and faculty voices.

Lesley is currently serving as co-chair on the Staff Senate Events Committee and on the Executive Committee.

Email: pwilli20@gmu.edu

Groups: Fairfax Campus, Executive Committee, Communications Committee

Position Title: Presidential Communications Manager

Current Department: Office of Communications and Marketing

Joined Mason in 2013

I appreciate working at Mason because I admire the university’s dual ambition: To serve the many and not the few, while at the same time aspiring to become/remain one of the top research universities in the country.

Joined Staff Senate in 2017

I joined the Staff Senate because in conversations and at town hall-style events, I sometimes hear staff members say, in essence, that their commitment to Mason feels deeper than Mason’s commitment to them. I think there is a collective desire throughout Mason to support the lives and careers of staff members, but we can look for more and better ways to ensure that that is the case.

I joined Staff Senate because after stepping into the position of Events Coordinator I thought this would be a great opportunity to network and build relationships with my fellow staff and campuses.
