Your Student Senate

Student Senate is a governing body dedicated to serving the students of UNC. It is composed of 25 members: 7 cabinet members and 18 college student council representatives (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.

Senate holds their meetings every other Wednesday at 5:30pm in the Council Room on the second floor of the University Center. These meetings are open to the public and all are welcome to attend!

Members of Student Senate hold a variety of responsibilities like being the students’ voice at Board of Trustee and Faculty Senate meetings, providing funding for students to attend conferences, assisting clubs and organizations with funding student programs, and representing student interests across campus.
