Augsburg University Staff Senate is here for YOU! We are excited about the new academic year, and we want staff to know how to engage us as a resource. Our mission is to serve as an advocate for staff, promote professional development opportunities, recognize staff contributions to the University, and foster and promote positive and meaningful dialogue across campus. We meet twice monthly, participate in various campus committees, host educational and social events, communicate with the Office of the President, and take concerns via our online form, email, and in person.

Sharing Staff Concerns

If you would like to contact Staff Senate you can use the online form (anonymous option) or email us concerns, issues or observations at staffsenate@augsburg.edu.

The feedback form is designed to allow Augsburg employees an opportunity to provide input to the Staff Senate, positive or negative. The form may be submitted anonymously. Please provide your contact information if you would like a member of Staff Senate to follow up with you. Your feedback will be discussed at our next available meeting time. If you would like to provide in-person feedback, we invite you to attend our open forums as well.
