  • Senator Spotlight

    The UMB Staff Senate consists of dedicated individuals from throughout campus who seek to provide a high level of service in representing staff needs. Curious who we are?

    Get to know us!

Started in 1994, the Staff Senate serves as an advisor and a channel of communication to the UMB president and the president's cabinet in the areas of policy and procedures, which affect the quality of staff members' work-life and their level of contribution to the strategic goals of the University.

Who We Are

The Staff Senate consists of over 20 exempt staff members who represent all the schools and central administration.

What We Do

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.


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 dialogue on important issues of concern to the parties. The common shared objective is to enhance the goals of the institution.
