What is Senate?


Texas Woman’s University Student Senate strives to be the liaison between students, faculty and staff as a voice for the students by addressing issues, holding informational forums, and finding solutions to campus related concerns. Student Senate encourages the development of leadership skills and the participation in campus and community activities while upholding the Senate Bylaws and Student Government Association Constitution.

The TWU Senate is the legislative branch of the Student Government Association (SGA) that gathers information from students, faculty and staff to create options and/or choices for rights and positions on campus. TWU Senate serves as a place where students can come and voice their opinion about things going on around campus to improve the University for everyone.
