The Office of the Assemblies staff is here to provide information, support, guidance, reimbursements, moral support, and (seasonally) hard candy.

The Office of the Assemblies provides administrative support and financial oversight to the Assemblies and their standing committees. We also work to engage constituencies across campus to increase participation in the shared governance process.
