The Student Senate is to be a body of well-informed students who represent their fellow peers, find innovative solutions to student concerns, and facilitate interaction between the students and the administration, faculty, and staff.
If you are interested in applying to serve as a Senator for one of our open seats, please take a look at the 2017-2018 Senate Appointment Application on Senate's Orgsync page. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
A Senate Proposal begins when a student comes up with an idea. The scope of a Senate Proposal is nearly boundless. Proposals can be changing University policies, creating new programs, changing existing programs, financing conferences, establishing new clubs and organizations...the possibilities are endless.
That idea is then put into the form of a Senate Proposal and brought before the Student Senate. Senate hears the proposal and begins working on the best way to implement your idea for the student body.
