The Student Senate of the Towson University Student Government Association holds the supreme legislative power for the Student Body, and is tasked with representing and advocating for the needs of the nearly 18,500 undergrads here at Towson. Every spring, students take time out of their busy schedules to vote for their representatives in the annual SGA elections. Eighteen senators are elected at large by the student body, and four freshmen and three transfer students are appointed by the Vice President and approved by a two-thirds vote of the Student Senate every year in the month of September. The job of a SGA senator consists of advocating for student concerns, supporting various causes and initiatives, regularly meeting with faculty and administrators, and representing student groups. One of the most important responsibilities of a senator is to draft legislation. Often, student groups will go to a senator with an issue and they will work together to draft legislation to solve it. This can include finance bills that appropriate money from the SGA’s $1.6 million dollar operating budget that go to fund all sorts of events that student groups put on. Every week the SGA holds a general assembly meeting that is open to all students where they discuss and vote on legislation submitted the week prior. We encourage students to come out and listen or voice their opinions so that we may better represent their views. All senators are required to fulfill a minimum of five office hours per week, so stop on by and a senator will be more than happy to assist you with whatever your may need.

Above all, the Student Senate is tasked with upholding the constitution and bylaws of the SGA, and to fulfill our mission statement:

“The Towson University Student Government Association strives to enhance the collegiate experience. We actively serve as a liaison for the Undergraduate student body advocating for progress towards achieving our common goals. Through leadership, commitment, and service, the Towson University Student Government Association aims to promote a positive campus community and to always exemplify what it means to be a true Towson Tiger.”
