On March 30 VP Vivian Fernandez informed the University community of candidates running for the nine (9) Staff Senate seats for 2017–2018. The successful nominees will serve 2-year terms and are charged with serving as an important advisory and legislative body to the University President and boards. The URA has identified some of our members who are running and looking for your vote and support.
You can read the entire list of nominees and their personal statements at Staff Senator 2017 Campaign Statements. The election will occur electronically and must be cast by 4:30 p.m. on April 5 and results will be available on April 6 at http://senate.rutgers.edu/StaffSenatorElectionResults2017.html. Go to https://hrservices.rutgers.edu/vote for more information and to vote. Please vote and secure responsible staff representation on the University Senate.
To prepare for your upcoming performance review the URA has provided a resource tool to help facilitate the process. Please go to our Professional Development page to view our SCP PowerPoint presentation.
In light of recent changes in immigration regulations and executive orders the AFT has provided a resource kit for undocumented students and campus support. Please share and use as you see fit to help our undocumented sisters and brothers.
