Senate Student Caucus

Your Voice on the Senate!

The University Senate makes decisions around all academic issues affecting students and faculty--curriculum, new programs, grades, exam procedures, academic integrity issues, advising, and more. The Senate Student Caucus consists of one-half student representation and one-half faculty and staff representation. As a Student Caucus, we are your sounding board, to bring your issues and concerns directly to the Senate, when the items are the purview of Senate, or to the appropriate administrative offices otherwise.  If you have concerns around student rights and expectations, international student needs, part-time student priorities, and practical needs, let us know. You can contact any member of the Senate Student Caucus or connect with us through this website.

Student Feedback

The Senate Student Caucus considers issues, concerns and successful initiatives which impact the entire student body or segments of the student body (eg, part-time students, international students, graduate students). These may be academic or non-academic in nature, including possible gaps in academic policy, health and safety concerns, student rights and expectations, international student needs, part-time student priorities, practical needs such as co-op opportunities, the Ignite program, availability of food options, and more. We encourage all students to submit their issues, concerns and successful initiatives through our NEW Student Feedback Form below.

Please note that your feedback is anonymous unless you provide your contact information.
