VCSU's Staff Senate was established to be a representative body of the broadbanded staff. The Senate strives to promote communication among administrators, faculty and staff employees. The Senate also informs and serves the broadbanded staff of Valley City State University through programming, service, and informational outreach. Senators are available for contact should any issue or need arise.
In addition to staff advocacy, Staff Senate organizes a number of events throughout the academic year, including the Employee Appreciation Banquet, highway cleanups, parade representation, and staff appreciation activities. Staff Senate also raises funds through Viking Pride participation to commemorate important life events within the VCSU community.
