The Staff Senate is the official body that represents all classified and nonstudent wage employees at George Mason. Some of the primary goals of the organization are to facilitate communication among staff members; foster a spirit of unity and cooperation; keep open lines of communication with the president, the faculty, and the students of the university; and act as an advocate for the George Mason staff by bringing their concerns to the attention of the appropriate body and following through to resolution.
