The Mānoa Staff Senate was officially approved by President David Lassner on July 26, 2019.

The creation of a staff senate is a momentous step forward in furthering shared governance, transparency, and effective communication at UH Mānoa.

The senate is committed to the betterment of the university and is responsible for collaborating with the administration in the development, review, and implementation of university policies and operations that impact and concern UHM staff.

This website will be the senate’s primary platform to communicate with the staff community at-large.
