Ohio Southern employee elected to University Administrative Senate

Sarah Diamond Burroway, Ohio University Southern’s director of External Relations, Communications and Workforce Success, has been elected to Ohio University’s Administrative Staff Senate and will represent the administrative staff of OU’s five regional campuses.

The purpose of the Administrative Senate is to promote and enhance the profession of university administration and specifically, the profession at Ohio University. The Administrative Senate provides a collective and independent voice to those having administrative responsibilities in the conduct of the educational mission of the University.

Chairperson Tim Epley said senators are elected proportionally from every planning unit and serve a two-year term.

“Our senate has an active role in reviewing and revising university policy and recognizing the achievements of our constituents,” he said. “We are proud of our role in shared governance and have representatives on many presidential standing committees and executive level search committees.”

Diamond Burroway has been employed at Ohio Southern since November 2016 and has more than 11 years of experience in post-secondary education administration. She will represent administrative staff from the five regional campuses, which include Chillicothe, Eastern, Lancaster, Southern and Zanesville.

The Administrative Staff Senate meets monthly.
