Staff Assembly

The mission of the Hamilton College Staff Assembly is to promote, strengthen and facilitate a sense of community and mutual respect.

The Staff Assembly will provide a forum where the interests, concerns, needs and ideas of non-faculty employees can be shared. It will promote effective channels of communication, the visibility of staff as valuable members of the community and a sense of belonging in the life of the College.

The Staff Assembly will strive to fulfill and communicate Hamilton’s institutional priorities and goals by:

  1. Acting in an advisory capacity to the President and senior staff.
  2. Increasing the sense of identity, recognition, and value of each staff member in his/her relationship to the College.
  3. Identifying concerns relating to staff and working to seek solutions.
  4. Promoting the development of policies aimed at retaining current staff members and including new staff members.
  5. Integrating staff more fully into College affairs while fostering a culture of mutual support, respect and professionalism.

Hamilton College staff includes all personnel, excluding faculty. Staff personnel are identified as those employees who work full time, part time, or in a temporary capacity. Students employed by the College are not considered staff.

The Staff Assembly is not a labor organization and its purpose is not to negotiate grievances, labor disputes, wages, hours of employment or conditions of work.
