The Student Senate is the official representative of the student body at Saint Paul College. Students enrolled in at least one credit at the College are considered senators and have voting rights at each General Assembly.

The Student Senate is a liaison to the College administration and faculty, and represents student ideas, concerns and issues.​

Opportunities for involvement include attending a regularly scheduled General Assembly meeting, going to Student Senate or Student Life sponsored activities, joining a committee, or running for office. ​

Through its participation with the Minnesota State College Student Association (MSCSA), the Student Senate also has a voice at the state level. It collaborates with other Student Senates, reviews legislative agendas, and engages in issues on a state and national level.  Participation in the organization is an excellent opportunity to engage in the political process, become acquainted with the college system and its resources, and develop leadership skills. If you’d like to attend a MSCSA Leadership Conference, complete the MSCSA New Attendee Registration Form.
