Student Senate

Representing Students at CU Anschutz

Student Senate is the interdisciplinary student governance group at the CU Anschutz. Representatives are elected from every class in every school or program: Anesthesiologist Assistants, Child Health Associate/Physician Assistant, Dentistry, Basic Sciences Graduate School, School of Public Health, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy and Physical Therapy.

Student Senate is responsible for the creation and oversight of the Senate Professional Development Assistance program, which reimburses travel expenses incurred by students attending extracurricular conferences and/or events that contribute to their educational experience. Senate is also responsible for planning and overseeing campus-wide senate sponsored events and activities. Senators address complaints and ideas for improving student life on campus, act as official liaisons between students and administration, attend meetings regularly and become involved in various committees and their work.

Student Senate is the Governance group that grants recognition to interdisciplinary student organizations wishing to be considered Affiliated Student Organizations. If you as a CU Anschutz degree seeking student are considering forming a new student organization, please see the Senate News and Forms page for the Senate Recognition Process and Registration/Affiliation Agreement form​.
