What is Student Senate?

As the official student government at Grand Valley State University, Student Senate works to ensure that the voice of the students is continually heard by the University.

Senate is comprised of 50 students who each serve on one of six different committees. These six committees work to enhance student life, academics, and the overall student experience at Grand Valley.
