For the first in the history of Saint Augustine’s University, there is now a Staff Senate. On February 4, staff members from various offices and departments met in the Prezell R. Robinson library to start the process and pave the way to shared governance.
The purpose of the Staff Senate is to seek ways to improve communication and collaborative decisions made across the University. The Senate may share ideas and concerns with President Everett B. Ward and members of the leadership team on any matters pertaining to the institution that are of interest and concern to the staff.
At the conclusion of the meeting, the Senate elected their chair, Mr. Tony Middleton, general manager for WAUG Network, who willing accepted the dutiful responsibility to be the lead voice of the Senate. Middleton is also an alumnus of the University.
