Illinois Wesleyan Student Senate

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, and Commissioners. The current Standing Commissioners are the CAB Commissioner, Inclusion & Awareness Commissioner, and the Civic Engagement Commissioner. A more in-depth explanation of each position can be found on the  Executive Board  page, as well as a short profile on the student currently holding that position and their contact information. 

The IWU Student Senate holds General Meetings on the Sundays listed below at 6 pm in the Hansen Student Center. These meetings are open to the entire campus. Students and faculty are welcome and encouraged to come to meetings and add to the discussion.
