MUSG   Academic   Senators

Who are Academic Senators?

MUSG is made up of students. Every decision the student senate makes directly effects us, as well as the rest of the student body. It is important to us that MUSG senators work with and on behalf of students. Senators write real legislation to be passed on to administrators, meet with faculty and university officials to discuss concerns, plan forums and events focused on specific topics and gain student feedback through surveys and meeting with students.

What is Student Senate?

Change Agents. Difference Makers. Helping Hands. These phrases exemplify what MUSG’s Senate is all about. MUSG represents the students, and senate is the means to act on what student’s desire. Ever since the founding of MUSG, senate has enacted meaningful change on Marquette’s campus. Whether it be through resolutions to directly help campus, or recommendations to administration, senate strives every day to deliver on issues that matter to the students.

The MUSG Senate actively identifies, addresses, and represents students’ needs, concerns, and interests. As a body, it is our sole job to represent the students and champion initiatives and ideas that will make the Marquette student experience.
