Senate Committees

The work of the Senate is largely accomplished by its numerous committees, which focus on specific areas of student concern as required by the Student Body Statutes. These committees meet on the off weeks to discuss ideas, research bills, and develop legislation that will be heard by the Senate.

Below is the list of Senate Committees and the chair of each committee. If you have specific concerns you would like addressed by a committee, please contact the chair of  the committee.
