Senior university leadership has approved a proposal to create a University Staff Assembly (Staff Assembly). This group of elected individuals shall represent Marquette University staff so that their views and interests may be considered, alongside those of faculty and students, in the conduct of institutional affairs that affect life in the workplace and in the advancement of the university’s mission.
Membership on the Staff Assembly shall consist of eight members-at-large (equal representation of exempt/non-exempt), eight area representatives (equal representation of exempt/non-exempt) and one associate or assistant vice president. Elections were held in April.
The Staff Assembly will have five standing sub-committees as follows: Bylaws Committee, Nominating and Election Committee, Work Environment Committee, Communications Committee, Staff Development and Service Committee. Members from the Staff Assembly will be appointed to administrative committees and other task forces including, but not limited to, the University Leadership Council.

Hello—I’m a senior writer in University Advancement. MU brought me to Milwaukee for graduate school in 1986; it’s where I met my husband of 23 years; and it has been the center of my professional career since 1999. Marquette means the world to me because it has shaped my world. I’m committed to help make the campus work environment all it can be for my fellow staff who are critical for making our university the special place it is. Please feel free to contact me at 414-288-4472 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am the director of Recreational Sports. I have worked a combined 17 years at MU, with my first stint being as an associate director of Rec Sports during the ’80s. I’m starting my 7th year in my current role. I have served on a number of divisional and university-wide committees and enjoy working with and getting to know different faculty and staff throughout campus. Please contact me at 414-288-5642 or email@example.com with your concerns/comments about global work environment matters.
