Senate

About

The Representative branch of Student Government affords students the opportunity to make a real difference on our campus. The Senate serves as one of the two Houses in the Representative branch and is comprised of two representatives from each School, who are appointed by their respective Deans. The Senate meets every other week and is a place for students to share ideas, collaborate and work together towards the betterment of the schools of study which comprise our university. Senate Committees will be formed once the Senate convenes and a Senate President has been elected.
