The University of Alabama Professional Staff Assembly (PSA) is a democratically-elected voting body committed to representing the needs of professional staff to our University administration. How is “professional staff” defined? If you meet the following criteria, then you are considered professional staff:

Employees of The University of Alabama holding full-time regular professional (non-faculty) positions that are eligible for full benefits and classified Equal Employment Opportunity 3 or 5 (EEO 3 or 5) shall be considered members in the professional staff employee group.

Working with Human Resources and other departments at the University, the PSA addresses such important employee issues as healthcare coverage, parking arrangements, child care possibilities, benefits tailoring, and more. Elected members interface with the Faculty Senate, OCTSA and several other agencies of the campus community to more fully serve the needs of employees.
