The Student Senate is a body of students who act as representatives in voicing the concerns of the undergraduate community at Lehigh University.
The Senate is comprised of 50 Members from all of the university’s living groups: Fraternities, Sororities, On-Campus, Off-Campus, and First-Year students. The seats are divided up proportionally to best represent the undergraduate population by affiliation and living groups.
The Senate is divided into a number of different sub-groups. There are three standing committees: Public Relations, Allocations, and Club Affairs.
In the beginning of each academic year, the full Senate also recognizes CLIP committees. These committees are organized for the entirety of the school year and have specific goals.
The Senate also has the power to create ad-hoc committees to deal with temporary issues as they arise throughout the year. Ad-Hoc committees can be formed and disbanded on an as-needed basis.
All full Senate meetings are open to every student. Please feel free to attend
and contribute your ideas. All full Senate meetings are held at 4:15 PM
until approximately 6:00 p.m. Dress is business casual.
The Senate also publishes "The Voice" monthly which features news about club events and new club recognition as well as initiatives on campus.
