A statement from President Sands on staff participation in governance

The Staff Senate is one of the ways all university and classified staff and non-student wage employees can participate in shared governance at Virginia Tech. The Senate is made up of elected representatives from each college and administrative area of the university.

The Senate normally meets on the third Thursday of each month. All university and classified staff and non-student wage employees are welcome to attend any meeting.
