Mission Statement

Our mission as the Aquinas College Student Senate is to fairly represent the diverse views, needs, and expectations of our student body in a Catholic Christian environment.

About Student Senate:

The Student Senate represents one-third of the governance structure at Aquinas College. The Senate is composed of the Executive Committee (Chair, Vice-Chair, and Secretary) as well as an appointed Budget Director, Academic Affairs Director, and elected senators from each academic class. Elections for Senators are held in September of each year.

The Senate meets twice a month on Wednesdays from 3-5 p.m. in Donnelly Center. These meetings are open sessions where the President, Dean of Students, and heads of campus departments have a presence to offer updates and discuss student concerns with Senators.

Senators represent the voice of the students and act as a liaison between students and upper administration. Senators actively seek out opportunities to engage with their constituents and attend campus events, in order to better understand concerns and ideas present among the student body.
