Dear Mason Staff,

I hope you had a restful and enjoyable Independence Day weekend! Some exciting events and opportunities are coming up for staff during July.

First, our annual Staff Senate election is now underway. This is your chance to vote for the classified and non-student wage staff members you want to represent you on the Staff Senate. You can also write-in a candidate you think would be great for the job. The election is open from July 8–19. Ballots will be distributed to constituents’ email inboxes.

Second, mark your calendar for the summer Staff Appreciation Event at your campus. We are celebrating and recognizing the hard work staff do during the summer months. Join us for some delicious ice cream, giveaways, music, and raffle prizes.

Finally, I hope you will attend one of the upcoming open forums on the presidential search process. This is a great opportunity to learn about the process and share feedback on what you would like to see in our next university president.

I hope to see you there!


Lauren Clark Reuscher
Chair, Staff Senate
