Senate Committees

Northwest's Student Senate serves as the voice and representative of the student body. To effectively accomplish such an enormous task, the Student Senate is organized into six committees and relies on the efforts of committed senators to actively seek information and opinions.

Civic Service Committee

Meetings: Tuesdays at 6 p.m

Student Senate has a strong commitment not only to the campus community, but also the Maryville Community. Through civic service, we maintain that commitment -- this committee hosts service events throughout the academic year for both students and community members.
