LaVon D. Gray
On behalf of the Winston-Salem State University Staff Senate Executive Board and the WSSU family, we welcome you to Ram Country! We encourage you to take an active role in the organization.
The mission of the organization is to provide an opportunity for all staff members at Winston-Salem State University to have an interactive role in defining and maintaining a workplace that encourages input from all staff in creating a harmonious environment in which to work, while collaboratively supporting the university's quest to provide a "premiere education" for its students.
The Staff Senate seeks to enhance the visibility of the organization and make it a vital and recognized organization for its SPA and EPA non-faculty members. With this purpose, we seek to:
• Stimulate a positive and supportive esprit de corps among staff;
• Establish a forum whereby staff can engage in interactive dialogue with
the Chancellor and/or chief administrators of the university to exchange
ideas, express views and make inquiries and/or suggestions for the
improvement of working relations and environment at Winston-Salem
• Keep staff abreast of issues that impact their respective jobs and
• Develop a network of diverse and talented employees organized to
establish and support activities that foster professional growth and
development as well as recognize the interests, contributions and
potential of all staff employees; and
• Assist in the development and implementation of a variety of
perpetual on-the-job training opportunities designed to enhance the
skills and techniques of staff dedicated to directly influencing
the long-term health and vibrancy of our community. We hope that
your workplace experience will be the most vitalizing and constructive
time of your life. Please let us know if you need our assistance at any
time to make WSSU more rewarding.
