Megann Murphy has been with the university since 2012 and is currently the Assistant Director for Event Scheduling. In the last two years, Megann has served as the Chair of the Pay and Benefits Committee on the Staff Association board; been an active participant of the Professional Development Committee, helping to grow the annual Staff Enrichment event; and coordinated with Bonfils for their quarterly campus Blood Drives, helping make UCCS the largest donor in Colorado Springs. She is also serving on the CU System committee tasked with recommending a new, system-wide, parental leave policy. Throughout her many roles at UCCS, she has had the privilege to work with both classified and university staff, and understands both systems. Change is upon us, with continued growth and a new Chancellor, and Staff Association should be a vehicle to generate new ideas and supporting our campus staff as UCCS continues to grow. Megann believes there is an abundance of rich traditions the campus can and should continue, but there are plenty of opportunities for new initiatives. One belief that Megann has, is that Staff Association can be more involved in the campus community through educational events, departmental meetings, and better communication. If elected, she would consider it an honor to assist with the leadership of this great organization within the University.
