2015-2016 Senate Elections

Six student­elected Senators represent each class. These Senators’ job include discussing and writing legislation with fellow student leaders and working in tandem with the ASLC Cabinet to promote the interests of the student body. Senators are required to attend one Senate meeting per week and expected to serve ASLC by being a member of at least one of ASLC’s standing or ad hoc committees.
