Student Senate

 dsc_0909

The Student Senate is a forum for student academic concerns and a voice for students on committees of the College Council (the primary body in campus governance, comprised of faculty, staff and student members, focused on the academic and community life of the College). Senators are nominated by the Student Senate of the previous year and elected by the student body. They serve two-year terms, starting in their junior year. 

Mission Statement:

The Senate is the academic body of the Student Government, charged with developing a diverse schedule of academic programming to meet the various needs of the student body, representing the student experience to the faculty and staff, and disseminating and providing opportunities (pre- and post-grad) to the college. In the present year, the Senate aspires to enhance the student academic experience by becoming more personalized and involved with the campus community and holding a responsibility in encouraging students’ intellectual and vocational pursuits.
