Good Morning Mason! My name is Sean Cox and I’m an Assistant Director for Event Services for the university. I’m also a Staff Senator serving my second year. One of my main drives as Senator is to help increase awareness about the needs of the Mason staff and how the Senate can help to create positive changes throughout the entire Mason community. It's with this drive in mind that I'm thrilled to make the following announcement:

I am taking over the Staff Senate page for the month of December to give you an inside look at my role at Mason as well as all of the amazing staffers I have the privilege to interact with each day. So, stay tuned for some exciting things over the next couple weeks here on the Staff Senate page! And – get your fellow co-workers in the Mason Nation to follow us as well so they too can take part in the fun!

Mark your calendars!
