STUDENT SENATE | Your campus, your call

The Baker University Student Senate represents all undergraduate students on the Baldwin City campus and serves as a liaison between them and the university administration. The senate also strives to provide students with a forum for communication within the student community.

Each class elects five members to the student senate. Senior, junior, and sophomore elections are held each spring. Freshmen elections are held shortly after the beginning of the school year. Five executive officers are elected each year.
