The Student Affairs Committee makes policy recommendations to the University regarding student-related activities and services, and is always looking for members and/or student input! You may email any questions/concerns to the Chair of the committee, David Harb.

Student elections for the 2020-2021 academic year will be held towards the end of April 2020.

  • There are four spots on the University Senate for Undergraduate Students, and one spot for Graduate and Law School Students.

  • University Senate meetings are typically held on the second Monday of each month at 3pm. In addition, elected senators will be appointed to one of the following standing committees: Undergraduate Academic Affairs Committee, Graduate Academic Affairs Committee, Planning and Budget Committee, and Student Affairs Committee.  These committees meet once a month, depending on their member's schedules.

  • Eligible students must be nominated by petition of at least 10 voters.

  • Everyone who applies will be asked to submit a photo of themselves as well as a short-focused statement (about 5 -7 sentences - written in the first person) via email with emphasis on those activities and ideas which best reflect his/her qualifications by the date indicated below.
