The Senate serves as the official representation of all students. The Senate is the
outlet for individuals to let their voices be heard. Each college is represented by
Senators with majors in a certain college. We discuss problems that students see at
our university and propose
resolutions to deal with these issues. We strive to be the voice of all students and to improve the quality of campus life for all. The Senate is chaired by the Executive Vice President of SGA and he or she serves as the Speaker of the Senate. Rachel Lee is the 2012-13 Executive Vice President/Speaker of the Senate.
The SGA Senate also recently adopted the AIDS Quilt as the Senate Philanthropy - a charity project that involves bringing the largest ongoing memorial craft project in the world onto campus. Other philanthropic organizations - such as the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, and Up Til Dawn - are supported by this group of students. The Senate takes pride in its dedication to effectively serving as the voice of all students at the largest undergraduate university in the state of Tennessee.
