Visitors are always welcome at Senate meetings, which take place at 5:15 p.m. on Tuesdays, twice a month. You may make announcements or ask questions at the very beginning of the meetings. Many senators hang around after meetings to further discuss issues with their constituents.
Student Government participates in and hosts many events throughout the school year. If you are not a senator but would like to help out, let us know!
Become a Senator
The primary way to become a senator is via elections, which take place in spring. If you wish to be a part of Senate, you can campaign for a Senate seat independently or as a member of a ticket. Applicants must also complete the Student Authorization Form (pdf) and email it to Delia Castillo-Arellano and the Student Government president, Sara Brennan.
Senate seats are dictated by school (e.g., EPPS, JSOM, NSM, etc.) and classification (e.g., freshman, sophomore, etc.).
If seats are vacated, some senators may be appointed. See the application for appointment.
University-wide committees are made up of faculty, staff and students working together to address issues and concerns ranging from academics to facilities to commencement to parking and more.
