Student Senate

The Porter Student Senate represents Porter students on all levels. It shares student government duties with the Student Union Assembly (SUA) and the UC system wide University of California Student Association (UCSA). Working through a number of committees, the Senate seeks to improve the quality of living and to organize events to enhance the sense of community at Porter College. The Senate sponsors such programs as Music on the Quad, political forums, dances, and art shows. Porter Student Senate is also a major funding body for Porter student projects. Your College Membership Fees and the college endowment provide the funding for Porter students, so come find out what's going on with your money. Meetings are held Thursdays evenings in the Fireside Lounge. Please check the Porter Calendar of Events for current meeting time.

In order for Senate to be effective, the involvement of a concerned student body is imperative. All new Porter students are voting senators, until they miss one meeting. Any registered Porter student may attain the title of Senator by attending two consecutive meetings of the Senate. Voting rights commence at the third meeting. All visitors have speaking rights. The chair of the Senate is elected at a college-wide town-hall election each quarter. Minutes and other postings are in the display case at the head of the Dining Hall stairs or available on this website. Copies of the Constitution of the Students of Porter College and other information about the Senate is available in D-143, call 459-2857, and on this website.
