Hi all! We hope you are having a nice quarter so far. Marissa and I are hoping to create more conversations with fellow students about the narrative evaluation process. We would love to hear your thoughts about what you most appreciate about narrative evaluations and what you would like to see change. If you would like to share your ideas, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out on our instagram @fairhavensenators. We would also love to see you at our office hours on Monday, February 1st from 11am-12pm. We’ll be meeting on Zoom. (Meeting ID: 988 9137 6441 Password: fairhaven) Please 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.
