Student Senate

What is 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 funds, and reviewing club/organization applications. Student Senate holds regularly scheduled meetings that 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 the Activity Fee Budget Request.
