Student Senate

The Student Senate is a legislative branch within the Associated Students of Western Washington University that represents student interests in academic affairs such as department policies, curriculum design, and academic support services. Two senators from each College advocate for students within their respective colleges, while four At-Large Senators represent all students.

If you have questions or concerns about your College's academic practices, come to a Senate meeting (in-person or virtually) or contact your College's senator to have your voice heard.
