Professional Staff at UB have been designated the right to establish, maintain and ammend the Constitution of the Professional Staff, Bylaws of the Professional Staff Senate and the Code of Ethics for the Professional Staff.
The Constitution gives the general membership of the professional staff the right to elect officers and senators to the Professional Staff Senate; and to nominate and elect (in conjunction with the UB Faculty Senate) representatives from the professional staff or faculty as senators to the SUNY University Faculty Senate.
> Read the Constitution of the Professional Staff
The bylaws of the PSS govern the formation and function of the senate, including roles and responsibilities, elections and meeting requirements.
> Read the Bylaws of the Professional Staff Senate
The Standing Rules of the Professional Staff Senate document the established policies and procedures of the senate and its committees. While more specific in nature than the Constitution and the Bylaws, the Standing Rules is more easily amended and updated to reflect the day-to-day operations of the PSS.
The members of the professional staff recognize their special responsibilities for the administrative, planning, support and technical functions at the University at Buffalo. These responsibilities derive from their roles as professionals with special knowledge or skills and as public servants affiliated with a public university.
> Read the Code of Ethics for the Professional Staff
All members of the professional staff at UB are bound by the policies and procedures of the university. Many of these policies are spelled out in the Faculty/Staff Handbook that is available to all staff members. Review your roles and responsiblities as a member of the UB community.
