About Student Senate
The Illinois Wesleyan University Student Senate serves as the voice of the student
body. They are committed to representing the needs and opinions of the students to
the campus administration and to providing the Illinois Wesleyan campus with a forum
for discussing important matters. The Student Senate focuses on bettering the campus
for all current students, alumni, and future students of Illinois Wesleyan University.
The IWU Student Senate is comprised of thirty-six senators, nine students representing
each class. The Executive Board of the IWU Student Senate is made of the President,
Vice President, Treasurer, Chief of Staff, Comptroller, CAB Director, and Commissioners.
The current Standing Commissioners are the Diversity & Inclusion Commissioner, Advocacy
