Welcome to the UNC Staff Assembly website.  As the Chair of the Staff Assembly, I am extremely proud of the work that has been accomplished by the members of the Staff Assembly, campus staff senates and assemblies, and the 31,000 staff workers in the UNC System.

Welcome to the UNC Staff Assembly website. As the Chair of the Staff Assembly, I am extremely proud of the work that has been accomplished by the members of the Staff Assembly, campus staff senates and assemblies, and the 31,000 staff workers in the UNC System.

The University of North Carolina is a multi-campus university dedicated to serving our state and its people through world-class teaching, research and scholarship, and outreach and service. The oldest public university in the nation, UNC traces its roots to the state’s 1776 constitution, which held that “All useful Learning shall be duly encouraged and promoted in one or more Universities.” Today, nearly 225,000 students are enrolled on 16 university campuses across the state and at the NC School of Science and Mathematics, the country’s first public, residential high school for gifted students.

It’s because of our efforts that the University of North Carolina System is the best higher education system in the country and one of the best in the world. We, the staff, manicure the coastal lawns at UNC Wilmington and the mountainous lawns of UNC Asheville; we keep the calendars and systems on schedule from the President’s Office in Chapel Hill to the Chancellor’s Office at UNC Pembroke in the southeast and to Western Carolina University in the southwest; we make sure the data flows from the Flagship campus’ in the triangle area, to the metro campus of UNC Charlotte, and to the scenic campus of Elizabeth City State University. Let there be no doubt: we, the staff, make sure the students are tucked in at night and all the doors are locked and secured.

It is an honor and a privilege to serve as the chair for this assembly and more importantly to be a member of the best academic staff in the country.

Thank you for visiting our website; hopefully, it has provided you with insight into the working of the Staff Assembly and our efforts to improving the efficiency and effective of the University of North Carolina.
