We value the voice of our students — be part of that initiative by becoming directly involved in student government.
Waubonsee’s Student Senate is a channel of communication for students to discuss academic topics with the administration. Members of the Student Senate sit on many college committees, enabling them to provide student perspective and feedback. Student Senate is governed by a constitution approved by vote of the student body. The senate is comprised of 12 students, a president and eleven senators, who are elected in the spring. The senate has open meetings and all students are invited to attend. Students are encouraged to share their ideas, problems and suggestions by using senate mailboxes in the Student Life office, STC 126.
A student member is elected to the Waubonsee Board of Trustees during the spring student government election and serves a one-year term. The Student Trustee attends all board meetings to represent the interests of Waubonsee students. The Student Trustee has a mailbox in STC 126 and can be contacted through the Student Life office.
