Student Government

At MWU, student government provides a forum for discussing and resolving student concerns, initiating recognition of new student organizations, and conducting reviews of student organizations. Student government functions at two levels: (1) the University and (2) the College.

University Student Senate

All students at each campus are represented through a campus-wide University Student Senate. On the Downers Grove campus, the Student Senate is composed of 34 members and 22 voting members, representing each college and program. The executive board of the Senate consists of the Speaker, Vice Speaker, the Treasurer and the Secretary. Meeting every month, the Student Senate provides a mechanism for governance of campus-wide activities and functions. It also provides a vehicle for the exchange of ideas and perceptions concerning student issues that cross college lines.

College Councils / Student Government Associations

Individual college student councils/student government associations function to provide governance for student issues related to the individual colleges, as well as conducting all-class and college-wide elections. Adoption of bylaws governing the individual college student councils/student government associations is at the discretion of the elected/appointed officers of these councils/associations. College student councils/student government associations are encouraged to adopt bylaws that are consistent with the bylaws of the other college student councils/associations.
