The Student Senate serves as the governing group for the student body. Senate funds recognized student groups, acts as the student voice, and forms committees to work on projects that improve the student experience on campus. With the Department of Student Life, Senate supports the success of all of the student groups through leadership and community-building activities.
The Student Senate elections are held early in the fall. Representatives are elected from each degree program. Senate meetings are held bi-weekly. Check the Senate Office, located on the second floor of the Student Center for more information. Although only Representatives can vote, these meetings are open to all students. Check the Senate meeting dates in the MCC Calendar.
Each fall the Senate sponsors a student delegation to participate in a national leadership conference. This provides student leaders with the opportunity to hear professional speakers, travel, and exchange ideas with their peers from across the country.
