Who we are
The Academic Staff Assembly is an elected body that represents UW-Whitewater instructional and non-instructional academic staff. The Assembly has primary responsibility for formulation and review of relevant policies and procedures and shall be represented in the development of all policies and procedures concerning academic staff members, including academic staff personnel matters.
We Are All Purple
The Academic Staff Assembly believes that the campus is a place that celebrates diversity. It is this core value that makes the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater a great community for students, staff, and faculty to thrive individually and collectively. We join the Chancellor, Whitewater Student Government, and Faculty Senate in solidarity in denouncing the vicious attacks against the very fabric of the University. These crimes do not represent the values for which we stand. As academic staff, both in the classroom and in the workplace, the Assembly encourages you to engage the individuals around--colleagues and students--in an open and honest dialogue to ensure that further bias-motivated incidents do not come to define who we are. The Assembly will work tirelessly to ensure that the differences that may separate us serve to unite us as a community. We are all purple.
Getting to Know Your Colleagues
The Academic Staff Assembly features new and existing academic staff members from across campus in a newsletter entitled "Getting to Know your Colleagues."
