Senate is the representative branch of Boston University Student Government and is overseen by the Senate Chair and Vice Chair. The senators come from either their respective schools or colleges or are members of a special interest group represented in Senate during that academic year. Of these senators, 36 are proportionally representative of the different undergraduate schools and colleges while three are representatives of their respective interest groups. Senators’ duties to their constituents involve bringing forward issues and advocacy topics their constituents have a vested interest in, proposing initiatives and plans to address their constituents’ concerns, and participating in weekly discussion on topics discussed in Senate meetings. Overall, Senators should strive to be leaders and forces for change within their college or college or university-wide.
All students are welcome to attend our weekly meetings on Mondays in the Photonics Building (8 St. Mary’s Street) at 8pm.
Please note that this year all Senators shall attend the Student Government Alumni Reception on September 20, 4 pm-6pm and the USG Training Day on September 22, 9:30 am - 3:30 pm.
