Student Senate

What is the AS Student Senate?

The AS Student Senate serves as the legislative body of the Associated Students of Western Washington University and is comprised of 21 Senators from the eight Colleges on campus, as well as from the general student population. The Senate is not limited in the scope of issues it covers, and these issues can originate from the AS Executive BOD, other AS offices, University committees, within the Senate itself, or directly from students. The group has the ability to draft, approve, and release resolutions on any issues brought before it. They also approve any changes to the charge and charter of the AS Election Board. The Student Senate is part of a bicameral system in the AS, acting as a separate body from the AS Executive BOD. For a visual explanation watch this video.

When and where does the Student Senate meet?

The Student Senate has bi-weekly meetings. Meeting materials for AS Student Senate meetings can be found here.

Who are my Senators?

Each College on Western’s campus has two Student Senators who represent the interests of the students within their College. If you are an undeclared major, there are four At-Large Senators who represent the interests of all students on campus, primarily those who have not yet declared a major at WWU.
