2021-2022 Staff Senators with President Neuhold-Ravikumar

The UCO Staff Senate was created in spring 2014 to represent the staff that work at UCO. The areas that make up the staff senate include: Academic Affairs, Administration, Enrollment & Student Success, Finance & Operations, Information Technology, Athletics, Foundation/Alumni, President’s Office, Legal, and Leadership/University Relations.


Recognizing the value of involving staff as the University progresses toward the accomplishment of its goals and solution of its problems, the staff, faculty and administration established the University of Central Oklahoma Staff Senate. The Staff Senate is the body elected to represent the University of Central Oklahoma staff. The Human Resources department will serve as the Staff Senate sponsor and liaison.

The Staff Senate wants and encourages you to address concerns and issues facing the university and staff. Please email a senator from your division, or Staff Senate President Adri Edwards-Johnson.
