Webster Staff Alliance

Mission and Goals

The Webster Staff Alliance (WSA) affirms that staff are a vital part of the Webster University community. Our purpose is to build an active staff community that engages across departments and campus locations to uphold the University mission; to serve in an advisory capacity to University Leadership on the issues and concerns of our diverse constituency; and to support staff professional development opportunities.

In practice, the WSA will:

  • Identify the issues, interests, and ideas of our diverse staff members to help guide the WSA's actions and proposals;
  • Develop, present, and follow through on compensation proposals in order to improve the work and life of Webster staff members; 
  • Sponsor professional development opportunities for staff;
  • Provide activities and events which seek to continually improve morale and foster cross-divisional communications and connections;
  • Engage the extended campus network in the decisions and activities of the main campus in order to strengthen the inclusion and unity of Webster staff;
  • Facilitate opportunities for staff to offer input on University decisions and policies by participating in Webster committees; 
  • Foster two-way communication and information-sharing across the extensive Webster network;
  • Recognize the outstanding contributions of our dedicated staff members;
  • Work in collaboration with faculty and students to support Webster's values and goals.
