Student Senate – Student Senate is empowered by the Saint Paul College President and Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) to represent the student body to the college and community. The purpose of the Student Senate is to represent student ideas, concerns and issues at Saint Paul College. Through its participation with the Minnesota State College Student Association (MSCSA), students can also present issues and concerns influencing legislation at the state and national level. Participation in the organization is an excellent opportunity to engage in the political process, serve on college committees, help organize and support student associations, as well as host volunteer events in the community. Every spring, students elect a President, Vice President, Treasurer, Diversity Officer, Secretary and Marketing/Events Coordinator. Officers serve one-year terms (August-May) and are paid $10/hour.
During the academic year, the student body comes together every two weeks for General Assembly. During General Assembly, all students have a vote on major issues affecting students. They can connect with student associations and consult with the college on tuition and fees.
