Student Senate


Valparaiso University Student Senate is the campus legislative and advisory body that gives the students a voice on campus issues through representatives they elect. Our General Assembly meetings are every other Monday at 8:30 p.m. in the Harre Union – Brown and Gold Room and are open to the public.

Our goal for this website is to be used as a tool for you, on the top menu you can find various resources depending on what you need. For example, under the “Student Organizations” you can find everything you need to know about starting, running, budgeting for and managing your organization. Under “Committees” you can find all of our current committees and their members.

Student Senate meets in-person in the Harre Union – Brown and Gold Room. You can attend the weekly general meetings in-person every other Monday night at 8:30 or by watching livestreams on the Student Senate YouTube Channel.
