Senate

ABOUT US

The Senate consists of 12 elected Senators who represent the interests of the undergraduate students  of USC. These Senators are split into Commuter, Greek, and Residential Constituencies.

How We Represent Students

If you have an idea or project to make USC a better place, the Senate is a great place to start. Our Senators are passionate about improving USC and love to partner with similarly passionate students. Whether you have a long-term project in mind or just want to change something about campus, contact our Senators to make that vision a reality.

Senators also have a vast knowledge of campus resources and serve as excellent advocates for campus organizations. During their “external office hours” Senators attend student organization meetings to learn how they can best advocate for needs of those students. If you are interested in having a Senator at your student organization, contact the USG Vice President.

Funding Opportunities

The Senate has a funding board that students, student organizations, and branches of USG can apply to. Senators vote on whether to fund a project based a presentation made our weekly Senate meeting. To apply for funding for Senate funding for your project or event, contact the USG Vice President and fill out the form, available on this page, four weeks prior to your event.
