Thank you for taking the time to read another edition of our fantastic newsletter. Our Education & Outreach Committee works tirelessly to bring you the latest news from the Mason community, and I think they are doing a great job!

I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Nicole Roth, and I have been elected as Chair of the Staff Senate. I am overwhelmingly excited to take on this new role and deeply appreciate the opportunity to advocate for staff at my alma mater. I began my adventure at Mason in fall 2004 as an undergraduate student, and I graduated in spring 2008 with a dual major in English and Art History. I immediately started working at the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media. I have also held positions with the Graduate Admissions Office in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, as well as my current role as Graduate Coordinator in the Department of History and Art History.

Throughout my time at Mason, I have had the opportunity to experience some of the university’s most exciting moments. But, I believe the best is yet to come. I hope that as we settle in to our summer routines you will stop by a Sizzlin’ Summertime Staff Appreciation event in July. You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy refreshments, chat with colleagues, and vote for the next class of Senators. The Staff Senate is preparing for another year of advocacy, but we need your input to make it happen. We want to hear your concerns, and I’d love the opportunity to meet you!
