Participation: The Classified Staff Senate is comprised of 16 classified staff members. Senators can be full-time or part-time, as long as they have worked for USM for at least 6-months. Senators are elected to 2-year terms, with 8 senators being up for election each year.
Representation: The Senate is the voice of the classified staff and it’s our responsibility to bring the concerns of the classified staff to President Cummings and his staff. We assist by serving, and/or finding classified staff members to serve, on university committees where President Cummings feels that input from the classified staff is important. We also serve on committees at the request of other university groups.
