Become a School Senator

The School Senator will act as a liaison between their respective school, the Student Senators Council (SSC), and the University Committee on Student Life (UCSL), and the University Senate. They must attend ALL called meetings of the SSC and UCSL. For more information on elections, email us at

Become a Senator at-Large
