Student Senate is Bradley University’s student governing body, and exists to promote and foster an environment conducive to a high quality education and individual development. The Student Senate Executive Board is elected by the Student Body to represent students' voices and oversee Student Senate's functions. It serves as the official liaison to the University administration, bringing student issues to their attention and recommending courses of action. The goal of Student Senate is to provide the best Bradley experience for every single student. 

There are many ways to get involved with Student Senate. Student Senators are elected from residence halls and appointed by academic colleges in the fall, with remaining openings filled throughout the year. There are 44 Student Senator positions in Student Senate, to learn more about openings please contact Speaker of the Assembly, Charles Cohen ( The Student Senate Executive Board- President, Speaker of the Assembly, Secretary of the Assembly, and Secretary of Finance- are elected by popular vote of the student body every spring.
