Staff Senate | University of Michigan-Dearborn Archives
The Staff Senate was organized and began working as a body in 1993, following the work of a Campus Governance Committee formed in early 1992. Its mission was to create a formal structure through which the staff might express its collective views to administration on non-academic matters. Nineteen members were elected for four-year terms. the Staff Council was created from this body to represent the Staff Senate at the Campus Forum and to meet with the Campus Liaison. It is made up of six members of teh Staff Senate, including the Chair, Vice-Chair and secretary, and three other members elected by the Staff Senate.
The chairpersons: Leah Long, 1993-1994, Mary Tobin, 1995-1997, David Cunningham, 1998, Rayna Anderson, 1999, Laura Drabczyk, 2000-2003.
