Your Student Senate

Student Senate is a governing body dedicated to serving the students of UNC. It is composed of 23 members: 8 cabinet members and 15 senators (3 from each college at UNC). Members of other areas of campus also sit on senate including representatives from the Residence Hall Association, Graduate Student Association, UNC Faculty, Professional Administration Staff Council, and Classified Staff Council.
