Staff Senate


UNK A.S.S.I.S.T. (Acclimating new Staff through Support, Involvement, Socializing and Trust) is a mentoring program developed and administered by Staff Senate to assist new staff employees. New situations can be stressful as the individual attempts to gain a "sense of place." The mentor helps the new employee achieve a comfort level within the university system. This is accomplished as the mentor assists the new employee navigate through policies, procedures, values, expectations, and customs, thus becoming a full participant in the university system. The program is designed to be an ongoing, flexible program that will be updated and expanded as needed.
