Nominations and elections are administered by each college or division each spring, and elected members begin two-year terms of office on April 1.
The Senate meets once per month, August through April, typically on the third Tuesday of the month, at 3:30pm.
Each member of the Senate is appointed to a standing committee. Each standing committee elects two of its members as co-chairs. The co-chairs also serve as members of the Senate Steering Committee.
Candidates for President, Vice President and Secretary are nominated in February and elected by vote of the Senate at the March meeting.
