Legislative Branch

The legislative branch of the Student Government Association is comprised of three committees, each with specific duties and responsibilities. These three committees combine to make up the Student Senate. These students, on a weekly basis, make decisions regarding bills and resolutions related to your academic life here on campus and are the driving force behind the Student Government Association.
