A simple way of getting involved is by attending Senate's biweekly General Assembly meetings, which happen every other Thursday at 7pm in the Legislative Assembly Room (SAC 2.302) Meetings are open to everyone, and all members of the University of Texas community are encouraged to attend. Additionally, applications for Senate At-Large Representatives are released at the beginning of each fall semester. The positions are open to all undergraduates, and we encourage individuals who show interest in making a difference in their academic community to apply.
Furthermore, each year, Senate appoints student members to several university-wide committees and working groups. Applications are made available each spring for terms that take place the following academic year. Students appointed as University-Wide Representatives provide occasional reports at Senate General Assembly meetings to keep the assembly up-to-date with current committee discussions.
In addition, interested students can also join a Senate agency. An agency of the Senate of College Councils is a registered student organization with initiatives that fulfill the academic mission of Senate and the University.
We also encourage individuals to apply to be a part of their college council. College councils provide opportunities for students to voice their opinions regarding relevant issues and directly implement change within their school. Each college/school has its own council and corresponding application process. Most councils accept applications in both fall and spring semesters. Individual applications and guidelines can be found on college council websites or by emailing a council executive board member. Links to council websites can be found here.
