The Professional Staff Organization (PSO), established in 1990, represents the issues and concerns of professional staff to the university administration, the campus, and our local community. All UW professional staff are members of PSO.

Over the years PSO has provided information to legislators, represented professional staff on faculty councils and committees ranging from academics to facilities, and worked to improve communication and build camaraderie among the professional staff throughout the university system. The PSO also collaborates with the UW administration on other issues relevant to professional staff.

To stay in touch with our members, we host meetings for staff in autumn and spring quarters, often with professional staff as speakers, to talk candidly and collegially about issues at the university. We also publish a biannual newsletter and award scholarships to help our members pursue professional development opportunities.
