At-Large Representatives directly shape the academic culture of the university and plan university-wide events, as well as collaborate with the university’s 20 college councils and the Senate Executive Board to present the official voice of students in matters concerning academic affairs to faculty and administration.
At-Larges will each serve on one committee led by two Committee Chairs and hold two office hours every week. At-Larges will also have the opportunity to research and write legislation that will be voted on by the General Assembly.

The Senate At-Large position provides a privileged opportunity for students to cultivate leadership skills and have the unique opportunity to collaborate on university-wide initiatives.
The At-Large position not only focuses on developing premier campus-wide leaders, but it also allows students to work with other driven, devoted individuals and capitalize on all the opportunities that the university has to offer.
How to Become an At-Large
The Senate Leadership Team chooses At-Large Representatives in the fall of each academic year. Interested individuals submit an application, are interviewed and the top applicants are chosen.
