The Senate is one of two houses in ASUU’s legislative branch. The Senate is responsible for representing students by allocating funds to College Student Councils (CSCs), reviewing proposed legislation, overseeing ASUU Executive Branch activities, serving on the University Academic Senate and various University committees, and working on University policy issues that impact students. Senators are elected each spring by the students of the colleges they represent and serve for a term of one year. There are 18 seats in the Senate, each of which represents the University’s different colleges.

Senators additionally chair their colleges’ CSCs, and they serve as the primary student representatives to their colleges’ administrations. Each college has a CSC, and it is responsible for advocating for the students of its college, providing college-wide programming, and recruiting students to the college, among other things.

College Student Councils can receive funding by submitting Budget Requests on Campus Connect and sending the request through the ASUU Senate, with the help of a Senator. Please contact the senator for your college if you need help submitting a Budget Request or understanding the legislative process.

The ASUU Senate has one funding cycle every three weeks.
