Staff members of the Northern Marianas College recently elected nine employees to its Staff Senate. The newly elected staff senate members include Elena Hofschneider (Finance), Randall Nelson (Student Services), Joyce Taro (Academic Programs), John Manalo (Community Programs), Sue Palacios and Isabel Sablan (Office of the President), Jack Kiyoshi (Human Resources), Clarice DLG Arriola (TRIO Student Support Services) and James Santos (Information Technology). Joyce Taro was also elected as the president of the Staff Senate.

The NMC Staff Senate, which serves as the official representative body of all staff members, participates in maintaining the integrity of the operational and academic processes at the College. The Senate also assists in determining needs, initiating and developing policies and mandates, and reviewing policies on administrative matters affecting the welfare of the College.

“The Staff Senate plays an integral role in the decisions that are made at the College,” said NMC President Dr. Carmen Fernandez. “I am highly confident in the abilities of all the new Senate members and look forward to working closely with them to further enhance the services we provide to our students.”

In addition to the Staff Senate, other governance councils at the College include the Planning, Budget, and Evaluation Council (PBEC); College Council; Academic Council; Faculty Senate; and the Associated Students of NMC (ASNMC).
