The University Staff Senate and University Staff Committee(s) are the representative bodies of the University staff at UWM. They represent all staff employees regardless of appointment type (permanent, project or limited term) proportionately by employment distribution category. There are over 1100 University Staff employees at UWM. The University Staff won the right to govern themselves beginning in 2011. They were the University Staff Council (formerly the Classified Staff Advisory Council). They became a fully formed Senate in 2019. For Agendas and Minutes previous to 2019 see the USC pages. After 2019 see the Senate pages. The USC now is the executive committee of the Senate.
