Through the Years

The members of the Staff Senate (previously known as the ELC) have worked to improve policies, procedures and benefits for all employees on the HSC campuses.   Additionally, they have worked to build and strengthen our campus community through development of events where fellow employees are recognized for their service, providing opportunities to communicate and work with co-workers, helping with campus safety, etc.
