Shared Governance Forum
The recent shared governance forum on March 30 inspired debate, answered questions, urged audience members to take part in University government, and spelled out why shared governance is so essential.
Started in 1994, the Staff Senate serves as an advisor and a channel of communication to the President and the President's cabinet in the areas of policy and procedures, which affect the quality of the staff's work-life and their level of contribution to the strategic goals of the University.
We advocate on behalf of UMB staff with regard to University policies and procedures that affect eligible employees; work environment and staff morale; and issues impacting wages, benefits, and working conditions. We also lead many Universitywide community outreach activities.
Self-Nominations are now being accepted for Senators to serve on the UMB Staff Senate for the 2016-2018 term.
Senators serve a 2-year term and represent over 2,100 Exempt, Non-Exempt/Excluded and Contractual II employees here at UMB. All academic schools and central administration are invited to participate so that all are represented!
*Ineligible employee groups include: (1) an employee group represented by collective bargaining, (2) faculty members, (3) senior administrator (such as AVP, VP, Dean, Asst. Dean or Assoc. Dean), (4) C1 employees, (5) students.
Shared Governance Statement
Shared governance is a priority at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB). We believe in a shared responsibility among staff, faculty, administration, and students to promote a collaborative process whereby UMB and the faculty, staff, and students have regular dialog on important issues of concern to the parties. The common shared objective is to enhance the goals of the institution.
