Senate

What does the Senate do?

The student senate acts as the legislative body of the Student Government Association. Senate does this by passing money bills and revising the budget rules. Senate can also pass Bills of Opinion, which are expressions of the senate regarding the welfare of the campus.

In addition, senate gives advice and consent over the constitutions of all extra-governmental and student organizations except honor societies and publications. It may take any action necessary to remedy or revoke any organizational constitution not upholding the principles of the College or violating the provisions of this Constitution.

Senate does not pass any act dealing with academic curriculum or limit the power of The Hornet or Board of Trustees.
