Positions and Responsibilities
In general, senators are expected to act as advocates for their fellow students on university matters that the OSG is involved in. Senators have the power to bring forward, debate, and pass resolutions and initiatives that will benefit the student body. They also are required to serve on 1-2 college committees as student representatives. It is expected that all Senators attend the body’s weekly meetings.
Usually, Senators spend 2-3 hours per week on their Senate responsibilities, depending on what they are working on or what committee meetings are that week. Past that, responsibilities vary depending on the type of senatorial seat someone is in; there are three (3) main types of senators: At-Large, Advocacy, and Academic.
At-Large Senators – represent and advocate on behalf of the student body at large.
Advocacy Senators – represent specific student communities on campus and are tasked with hosting or participating in some sort of event, or authoring a resolution that benefits the community they represent.
Academic Senators– represent specific academic colleges on campus and are tasked with hosting or participating in some sort of event, or authoring a resolution that benefits the college they represent.
