Advocating for the WashU Community
Over the past year, Senators have been behind a number of large-scale initiatives on campus, such as iTunes U, the Circ Tracker App, SyllabiCentral, and charger rentals in the library. And new initiatives are springing up every day—for example, currently Senators are working to create an interactive printer map of campus.
In addition to such large-scale initiatives, Senators’ responsibilities include passage of the $3.4+ million Student Union general budget and to serve as the voice of the student body to the administration. To connect with them on social media, visit https://www.facebook.com/SUSenate/
Task Force Chairs
Through the Improve WashU Campaign, SU Senate asked the student body what topics they wanted Senate to focus on. The results led to the creation of four task forces: General Student Experience, Mental Health, Socioeconomic Status, and Racial Diversity. The goal of these task forces is to research their topics to identify problems, talk to relevant administrators, find solutions, and develop action plans that the task force can accomplish.
