UNC Staff Assembly meets on campus

Wednesday, August 2, 2017

UNC Charlotte recently hosted the quarterly meeting of the UNC Staff Assembly, which is composed of elected delegates from each of the 17 campuses in the system. The UNC Staff Assembly “serves in a parallel function with the University Faculty Assembly and the Association of Student Governments to address constructively the concerns and interests of the respective campuses and the whole University.”

On the first day of the assembly’s visit, delegates conducted committee meetings, followed by a presentation on campus free speech by Catherine Mitchell, UNC Charlotte’s assistant general counsel, and one on the upcoming solar eclipse by Brian Hart, a representative from UNC Asheville.

Chancellor Philip L. Dubois officially welcomed the assembly to campus, and he and his wife, Lisa Lewis Dubois, hosted an evening reception for the contingent at Bissell House.

On day two, representatives took a bus tour of campus, led by Heather Gladys from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Committee chairs delivered their reports, followed by an open discussion and question-and-answer session.

The UNC Charlotte Staff Council coordinated the UNC Staff Assembly’s visit and presented University gifts to outgoing assembly chair Pernell Bartlett of Elizabeth City State University and incoming chair Dawn Brown from UNC Wilmington.

Penny Stevens, Celeste Corpening and Ronnie Bell are UNC Charlotte’s representatives on the UNC Staff Assembly.

The next quarterly meeting of the UNC Staff Assembly will be Oct. 16-17 at UNC General Administration.
