Student Senate

Welcome to Student Senate!

Student Senate is a driving voice organization that consists of 22 elected Clarion University Student Senators. Their responsibility is to represent the entire student body. Student Senate is vested with all powers of the Clarion Students' Association (CSA) and they allocate the Student Activity Fee revenues with the approval of the President of Clarion University.

The Student Senate office is located in Gemmell 268. It is past the information desk and to the right of the seating areas. Student Senate meets Mondays at 7:30pm in 246 Gemmell. Upcoming meetings will be posted under the events section. These meetings are open to all students, faculty, and staff, so please, come to the meetings if you would like to voice any concern about the campus or are interested in Student Senate.

Becoming A Senator

If you are interested in becoming a Senator, applications will be on the Student Senate's bulletin board or in the office during the end of the spring semester. Also, applications may be available for special elections if a seat needs to be filled. The application consists of basic contact information, a picture of the applicant, and the applicant's platform. After the application deadline, elections occur by voting of the students of Clarion University via CU Connect.
