This senate body at Wichita State University exists to promote the interests of all University
Support Staff employees of the University, to provide an open forum for the expression
of these interests, and to regularize the exchange of information between administrators,
faculty, students and University Support Staff of the University.
The senates have been discussing joining forces to form one representative body with
both UP and USS members. On April 1 2019, the USS and UP Senates invited all USS
and UP staff to attend an Open Forum Discussion to gather feedback on combining the
USS and UP Senates.
Note: The discussion of joining forces for one representative body relates to senate
representation only and has no effect on employee position classifications as UP or
USS or their related personnel policies or procedures.
