The Richards Administration’s Office of the Chief of Staff manages all staff operations across the administration. The goals of the Office of Chief of Staff are to create a collaborative and comfortable environment within the Office and Branch, foster a culture within the Branch that prioritizes equity, create opportunities for multidimensional growth for Branch members, and strengthen the branch’s connection with campus and community partners as the branch moves away from a virtual setting.

Meetings of the Office of the Undergraduate Chief of Staff are held weekly on Mondays from 8:00-9:00 pm EST in Carolina Union 3109.

For all Chief of Staff inquiries, please email
