» Senate

Every decision the Student Government Association (SGA) makes is based on students’ needs and input. With 16 senators, SGA works to solve your concerns. It meets with school officials, researches possible solutions, and creates and passes legislation.

To ensure that the entire student body is heard, every Senator represents a specific constituency: There are 9 school senators, 5 student organization senators, 1 upperclassman senator and 1 underclassman senator.

Each senator sits on at least one of the four standing committees: the Allocations Committee, the Diversity Affairs Committee, the Community Outreach Committee, and the University and Academic Affairs Committee.

If you have any questions, concerns, or issues to bring up to Senate please contact the Speaker of Senate by email at speaker@chapman.edu

If you’re interested in learning more, come to a meeting! Senate meets every Friday from 1-3 p.m. in the Argyros Forum Second Floor Boardroom.
