SGA Senate

The SGA Senate consists of up to 8 elected student representatives. This body acts as the voice of the students by addressing and remedying concerns and taking the initiative with student ideas. Much like the senate in Washington D.C., this body acts through drafting, debating and passing legislation.

Though much of the work done on the resolutions and bills happens during the week or in committee meetings, the Senate votes on and debates all pieces of legislation at official senate sessions. Each meeting contains a public comment section in the beginning, during which guests are free to voice their opinions, concerns, or ideas.

Senate Committees

As earlier alluded to, the Senate operates several committees in the interest of attending to all tasks in an efficient and effective manner. More information on Senate committees is available here.

In addition to making use of the Constitution, the senate also runs its meetings under Robert's Rules of Order , and follows parliamentary procedure.
