The Student Senate is the central legislative branch in representation of our student body. We are the principal advocate for the interests of the student body as a whole to the Winston Salem State University administration and faculty; we ensure effective and strategic student participation in the faculty governance system. The Senate is a central forum for common dialogue within the student community, and for the development of legislation to actualize goals of the student body.
To establish a two way communication system between the students of Winston Salem State University and its governing powers. This communication includes, but is not limited to, the public review of senate business such as legislature and meeting minutes, open senate meetings, and student surveys, at the chairperson's discretion. The true vision of the student senate is to become an effective governing body which holds the well-being of Winston Salem State University's students at its core functionality.
