Staff Senate Nominations to Open March 24

Published: Mar 3, 2014
LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 3, 2014) — Nominations for the University of Kentucky Staff Senate will be open from Monday, March 24, through Friday, April 4.

 

The UK Staff Senate is the official representative body of the staff of the university. Staff members interested in serving may self-nominate during this period. All regular, UK employees with a 0.75 full time equivalency or greater serving in staff positions are eligible, provided they have at least one year of continuous service by April 1, 2014.

 

Staff Senators serve on a variety of decision-making and reporting committees. Five senators are currently serving on strategic planning committees. Many senators contribute personal time to campus programming and improvement. Senators provide leadership within their work units as well.

 

“We encourage staff to get involved in shared governance at the university,” said Jeff Spradling, Senate chair. “Staff do play an important role in moving UK forward, and the Senate is an excellent way to get involved in the process.”

 

Serving on the Staff Senate can benefit your college, department or unit by providing an opportunity for employee involvement in university leadership, creating a sense of ownership of the university, and creating a conduit for communication about university initiatives and decision making. Staff senators are involved in decisions that affect the entire university, such as raise allocations, review and revision of regulations, and budgeting.

 

Electronic and printable versions of the nomination form are available at the Staff Senate website at http://www.uky.edu/staffsenate/staff-senate-2014-election-information. Requests for forms and other information may also be directed to Holly Jones Clark, Staff Senate office coordinator, at 859-257-9242 or hclark@email.uky.edu.

 

Nomination forms may be submitted electronically via the Staff Senate website or by mail to: Holly Jones Clark, UK Staff Senate Election Committee, 202C Main Building, Lexington, KY, 40506-0032. Documents may also be faxed to 859-257-9240 or sent via email to hclark@email.uky.edu. Nominations must be received no later than 4 p.m. EDT on Friday, April 4, to be considered for eligibility. Please allow time for campus mail.

 

All UK employees serving in staff positions (including those with faculty appointments) are eligible to vote in the Staff Senate elections. Voting begins for all precincts Monday, April 21, and runs through Friday, May 2. Election results will be announced on UKNow Tuesday, May 6. Questions about the process may be directed to the Election Committee.
