Belinda Nix, academic counselor and enrollment coordinator for the School of Nursing, has been elected as the next president of the UA Little Rock Staff Senate for the 2023-24 academic year.

“I am excited to serve as president-elect of Staff Senate,” Nix said. “I came here as an administrative assistant III in 2014 and have been able to get my education. The university has done a lot for me, so I am excited to give back to the university community.”

A native of Arkadelphia, Nix is a first-generation graduate of UA Little Rock, earning a bachelor’s degree in speech communication in 2017 and a master’s degree in professional and technical writing in 2019. She is currently a graduate student in applied communication and has plans to graduate with her second master’s degree in May.

In her current role in the School of Nursing, Nix enrolls and advises nursing students in the RN to BSN program, helps with social media and website management, and serves as a liaison with area hospitals.

She was happy to join Staff Senate as a way to get more involved in campus life and more connected to her fellow staff members. Now on her second term as a staff senator, Nix chairs the Staff Awards Committee, which selects the Staff Achievement Award winners and runs the annual Staff Awards Ceremony. She also serves on the Communications Committee and previously served on the Issues and Concerns Committee.

In addition to Staff Senate, Nix is a member of NACADA, a global community for academic advisors, and the Phi Kappa Phi honor society. In her spare time, she enjoys the Natural State’s lakes and rivers and spending time with her miniature poodle, Kingsley, and Goldendoodle, Luna.
