Classified Staff Senate (CSS)


The Classified Staff Senate (CSS) is charged with promoting a positive professional environment for all classified employees, support professional development activities, encourage informed communication among classified staff and within the broader University community, and serve as an advisor to the Chancellor and other University administrators.

Our mission is to work with University of Wisconsin-Superior (UWS) campus leadership to promote effective partnerships with colleagues from all campus employee groups in support of the university's mission. We serve as an advocate for classified staff as well as for their ongoing professional development opportunities. We do this by encouraging respect, open communication, and equality between all members of the campus community.

Resources for Classified Staff


The Classified Staff Senate (CSS) will be holding elections for five seats on our Advisory Board. They are each a three-year commitment.

All members of classified staff are eligible, and encouraged, to seek election to CSS. Any member of the classified staff may be nominated by colleagues or self-nominate to serve on CSS. If nominated by another, the CSS Chair will verify the nominee's willingness to participate. All nominees who accept will be listed on the election ballot. All voting will occur online. All classified staff are eligible to vote, with elections taking place the first Tuesday in May--Tuesday, May 5, 2015.

Terms for membership will be based on the fiscal year, July 1 through June 30 of each year.

CSS holds regular meetings monthly. CSS meetings are open to all UWS employees and are held during normal business hours, typically between 7:45AM and 4:30PM.

Please email Trish Hegstrom-Olson or Dana Luzaich with your nominations.
