Staff Senate

The Towson University Staff Senate (TUSS) is the advocate body for all university staff employees. Through its advisory role with the university administration, TUSS seeks to further the prominence of the university by promoting the value and talents of its staff employees.

Now recognized as the Towson University Staff Senate (TUSS), our roots go back to 1993, when as a result of strong campus-wide interest, the Staff Council was formed by the president. Initially formed to serve as an advisory body to the president's staff on non-faculty matters, the Senate is now a recognized shared governance body of the university that offers all staff employees an opportunity to express ideas and concerns and provides a means for assessing campus opinion on important staff issues. It further means to act as a communication channel between the president and the university staff, and to advise on matters relating to staff, the work environment, and the general welfare of the university as a whole.
