Student Senate

Hi all! We hope you are having a nice quarter so far. Our spring Office hours are Mondays at 12:30-1:30 (Meeting ID: 626 569 7715 Password: Fairhaven) If you would like to contact us outside of office hours, please email us at as.fairhaven.senators@wwu.edu or reach out on our Instagram @fairhavensenators. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns. 

 

Also, please consider taking this survey that was created by the D+ team at the Disability Outreach Center. It will help to provide invaluable information for the D+ team, which will in turn lead to an even better disability positivity training for staff, faculty, and student leaders once it is complete. Making this training the best it can be will help lead to less ableism on our campus and have a tremendous positive impact on the experience of disabled students here at Western. The survey only takes about 5-10 minutes to complete. Here is the link:

Who are my Senators?

Each College on Western’s campus has two Student Senators who represent the interests of the students within their College. If you are an undeclared major, there are four At-Large Senators who represent the interests of all students on campus, primarily those who have not yet declared a major at WWU.

What is the AS Student Senate?

The AS Student Senate serves as the legislative body of the Associated Students of Western Washington University and is comprised of 21 Senators from the eight Colleges on campus, as well as from the general student population. The Senate is not limited in the scope of issues it covers, and these issues can originate from the AS Executive BOD, other AS offices, University committees, within the Senate itself, or directly from students. The group has the ability to draft, approve, and release resolutions on any issues brought before it. They also approve any changes to the charge and charter of the AS Election Board. The Student Senate is part of a bicameral system in the AS, acting as a separate body from the AS Executive BOD. For a visual explanation watch this video.
