About the Positions
As the Students' Association's Executive Branch, the President and Vice President are the official representatives of the SA . The President and Vice President are responsible for the implementation and execution of all legislation passed by the Senate. Additionally, in their capacity as the figureheads of student government, the President and Vice President meet frequently with deans, faculty, and other administrators on a regular basis in order to improve the quality of student services.
The Students' Association Senate is the legislative body of student government. Charged with the task of bettering student life, the Senate works to pass legislation and oversee the operation of student organizations. Comprised of four standing committees: Appropriations, Projects and Services, Policy and Review, and Communications and Public Relations, the Senate aims to advocate for all students. If you are interested in getting involved but do not want to run as a Senator, you can also apply for an appointed position in SA Government.
Class Councils (PDF) are programming groups that promote class unity and school spirit by planning events and creating traditions. Each graduating class elects eight representatives to their respective Councils.
If you are interested in getting involved in SA Government, but do not want to run as a Senator, you can also apply for an appointed position in SA Government by contacting the President.
