The Senate was built with a diverse membership in mind to ensure that groups throughout campus would be aware of the ASUW's activities, and that the ASUW would be aware of issues affecting students. Its membership includes representatives from the Greek and Multi-Greek systems, residence halls, ASUW commissions, commuter students, and various academic departments, among others. There are also at-large members, the ASUW President's proxy, and liaisons from the Board of Directors.

The Student Senate breaks down into eight committees, each of which is responsible for a specific area of student government. During the first weeks of Fall Quarter the Senate will elect a chair for each of the standing committees. Each committee sets its own agenda, elects a secretary, and provides reports on its activities to the Senate. The committees distribute projects among Senators. These projects include researching issues as a group, consider legislation that comes before them and providing student representation as Governance appointees for the ASUW on university committees. Because they are smaller and more focused than the Senate as a whole, the committees are able to consider issues in greater depth. The main importance of the committees is that all legislation that comes before the Senate must pass through the appropriate committee. As such, the committees are the heart of the Senate. Each Senator is responsible for participation in one committee.

Contents

[edit] History of Student Senate

The Student Senate was founded during the summer of 1994 from the foundations of its predecessor, known as the Student Assembly, which was formed in the 1980's. During the Spring 1994 elections, the student body passed by majority vote constitutional reforms proposed by the soon-to-be 1994-95 ASUW President Phil Neiswender.

The Senate was built with a diverse membership in mind to ensure that groups throughout campus would be aware of the ASUW's activities, and that the ASUW would be aware of issues affecting students. Its membership includes representatives from the Greek and Multi-Greek Communities, residence halls, ASUW commissions, various academic departments, and students . There are also at-large members, the ASUW President's proxy, and liaisons from the Board of Directors.

Any student, though not able to vote, may submit legislation or speak on any issue during the public forum segment of the Student Senate meetings.

The Student Senate is looked to by faculty and administrators alike as the voice of the student body and resolutions passed by the Student Senate are taken as the official postions of University of Washington students.
