What is Student Senate?

Student Senate is as group of students connecting to create change on your campus and in your state of Minnesota. We organize with the state organization of Student Senate’s called LeadMN.  We go to leadership and development conferences as a Senate. Most importantly, we advocate on the behalf and act as the official voice of the students to legislators and all school and state administrators.
