Student Senate

Student Senate is the governing body of the Winona State University Student Association.  In its capacity, Student Senate acts as the recognized voice and bargaining unit for all students at Winona State University.  This is done through the process of consultation and student government.

Student Senate also is responsible, through the Student Activity Fee Committee (SAFC), for appropriating budgets to student clubs and organizations and granting special requests.

The Senate is made up of three executives -- the president, vice president, and treasurer -- and 28 senators, as well as affiliate positions, such as Parliamentarian, Administrative Office Assistant, MSUSA Campus Representative, MSUSA Diversity Representative, and the RHA Representative.  Senate also is made up of four committees that deal with specific issues.  The committees, along with their constitutional obligations, are: Academic Affairs, Student Services, Community Affairs, and Student Activity Fee Committee.

Meeting Times and Locations


All Student Senate meetings are open to the student body and we encourage you to attend to voice your concerns or to take part in University legislation. We do adhere to Robert's Rules of Conduct when conducting our meetings.
