The MUSG Senate is responsible for representing the ideas, opinions and concerns of the student body to university administration. Senators work on behalf of students by writing legislation to be passed on to administrators, meeting with faculty and university officials to discuss concerns, planning forums and events focused on specific topics and gaining student feedback through surveys meeting with students.

Current issues that MUSG Senators are working on include alcohol amnesty, implementing course evaluations into the registration process, and more. More details about Senate initiatives can be found on our blog.

Senators are always looking to better understand student needs and advocate for what students want during their time at Marquette. If you have a concern or an issue that needs to be addressed, please feel free to contact one of your MUSG Senators or share your concern at a weekly Senate meeting during the Forum for Concerned Students. Working with an MUSG Senator can help bring a beneficial change to Marquette and improve the lives of other students.
