What is Student Senate?

As the official student government, Grand Valley State University's Student Senate works to ensure that the voice of the students is continually heard by the University.

The Student Senate is comprised of 50 students who each serve on one of seven different committees. These seven committees work to enhance student life, academics, and the overall student experience at Grand Valley. Click through the navigation at the top of the page to learn more about each committee.

General Assembly meetings of the Senate occur every Thursday of the fall and winter semesters at 4:30pm. Most are held in the Pere Marquette room of the Kirkhof Center on the Allendale Campus. Check here for a detailed schedule and more information.
