  • Promote sincere interest and concern for continuing the missions and goals of Lindenwood University;
  • Serve as the representative body for the staff employees of the university;
  • Provide an additional channel of communication for staff with administration and faculty; 
  • Assist the administration with advice, as needed, on policy issues relevant to the staff;
  • Address concerns of the general staff population and seek improvement of staff work environment, conditions, and processes;
  • Foster a spirit of unity and cooperation.
