NVC Staff Senate

About Us

The Northwest Vista College Staff Senate is a collective voice of elected non-academic employees. The NVC Staff Senate is charged with the responsibility of making sure that all staff members are equitably represented in the operation of the college, as well as the District. We support a variety of activities and initiatives to improve the quality of life and effectiveness of the college's dedicated and valuable staff. Every year elections are held to elect new senate members and we encourage nominations and participation from every NVC staff member. It's never too late to get involved!
