Student Senate

Student Senate is the representative body for the students of GCC. Some of their primary responsibilities include making recommendations to the College on student issues, allocating student activity fee monies, and reviewing club/organization applications. Student Senate holds regularly scheduled meetings and all members of the campus community are invited to attend. Student Senate is comprised of eleven student leaders in the following positions: President, Vice President, Student Trustee, and eight Senators. The Student Senate Constitution can be viewed here: GCC Student Senate Constitution. One of the major responsibilities of Student Senate is to allocate the Student Activity Fee Budget.

GCC groups or individuals seeking annual or one time activity fee funding, should complete this form Activity Fee Budget Request.

Interested in Running for Student Senate?

Have you ever thought about getting involved on campus? Do you want to have a voice in how Student Activity Fee money is allocated? Eight students will be elected at large from the student body (four students in October and four students in February).  To be eligible to hold Senate office, Senators must have paid a Student Activity Fee, and be in good standing with the College (i.e., maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average and good judicial standing) Student Trustee Applications are due December 1st by 4PM.
