About Us

The Undergraduate Senate is the body of elected representatives for Stanford’s undergraduate population. It is comprised of 15 students from all majors and graduating classes. The Senate meets weekly in Old Union 104 and via Zoom.

Financial Support Through the Appropriations Committee, the Senate is responsible for approving funding for 600+ student groups.

Leadership The Senate aims to provide many leadership opportunities to Stanford undergraduates to develop their skills as advocates, fiduciaries, and stakeholders.
