Do you want to support the staff at the University of Central Arkansas? Staff Senate does everything within our power to represent, serve, and recognize the UCA staff but there is more work to be done! You can support UCA staff through an online gift today. Support our staff through donations one of three ways:

  1. Angel Bear Fund: This fund provides assistance with the holiday expenses for UCA employees (households that meet the income requirement for free/reduced lunch). This fund is overseen by Staff Senate Executive Staff and the Angel Bear Tree Committee, who administers the Angel Bear Tree program on campus to gather, wrap, and distribute gift donations.
  2. Staff Senate Emergency Fund: The Staff Senate Emergency Fund is a fund established within the Senate to offer limited financial assistance to UCA staff during times of extreme hardship. The Staff Senate Emergency Fund is funded through staff donations and Staff Senate events. The fund is maintained by the Senate and administered by the Staff Senate Emergency Fund Committee, which is composed of at least 5 Staff Senators.
  3. Staff Senate Scholarship Fund: Donations received for the Staff Senate Scholarship Fund support the Staff Senate Employee Scholarship (established by the UCA Staff Senate to assist a full-time UCA staff employee in pursuing a degree at UCA) and the Staff Senate Scholarship for Dependents of UCA Staff (for dependents of full-time UCA staff employees who meet the eligibility criteria for the staff fee waiver as outlined in the Staff Handbook and are pursuing a degree at UCA).

If you have questions, please contact the Staff Senate Executive Committee.
