Legislative Branch



Student Senate

Student Senate functions as the legislative branch of Student Government and exists to advocate on behalf of students to voice the opinion of Baylor students.

These goals are sought and accomplished by 52 representatives elected by the student body to represent each class. Within Student Senate, these members are separated into five standing committees to insure that the student body is most efficiently represented. These committees include Academic Affairs, Campus Improvements and Affairs, Finance, Operations and Procedures, and Public Relations. Ad Hoc committees also are formed, as needed, to address specific issues and projects.

Student Senate also has appropriating power over the Student Government Allocation Fund. Each student contributes toward this fund, which amounts to approximately $90,000 per semester. Student Senate allocates the funds toward programs, projects, or ideas aimed at the campus as a whole, community service, or charitable causes.

It is the duty of each member of the Student Senate to accomplish the aforementioned goals by operating as advocates for the student body.
