Committees

Our student senate has committees that we use to address and work within important areas of the college for further success as an organization. These committees work for improvements in their areas, as well as address concerns of the student body. If you have an idea or an issue that falls within these areas, please feel free to contact us for assistance.

The Student Advocacy Committee
