THE SENATE

MEET YOUR COLLEGE
SENATORS

Senate is the representative branch of BU Student Government and is overseen by the Office of the Senate Chair. Senate is comprised of 45 senators. 8 of these senators are from At-Large Parties, which run on special interest platforms. The remaining 37 seats are allocated proportionate to the student populations of BU's colleges. 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.
