Student Senate is empowered by the Saint Paul College President and Minnesota State 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 LeadMN, 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 organizations, 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 hourly.
