Each campus has a student governing body called the Student Senate. Senate representatives are elected in the fall and plan a variety of activities throughout the year. The Senate coordinates legislative activities that affect students and provide assistance to other campus organizations.
The role of the senators is to be the primary communication link between the administration and the student community. The Senate offers an opportunity to develop leadership, civic awareness, community involvement and basic understanding of human relations.
Students in technical/occupational programs and students majoring in Liberal Arts or Undecided interested in serving as a senator must present a petition signed by 25 current Riverland students at the first Senate meeting.
Student Senators represent the student body to the college administration and are asked to make decisions about important topics that directly impact students.
