Senate Meetings

All meetings of the University Student Senate are open to students/faculty/administration. Meetings are held every Monday at 5:30 pm in the President's Lounge. We hope to see you there.

An Introduction from the President:


Welcome to the official website of the Saint Joseph’s University Student Senate (USS)!


Amidst an era of substantial and innovative change at the University, the USS remains committed to uplifting and advocating for student voices. Regardless of where our college journeys began, we are all now united under the historic name of Saint Joseph, and we join in the legacy of this institution forevermore.


As the student representative body within university governance, the USS is an open resource for all, working to foster communication and transparency between administration and the student body. As you explore our site, I invite you to familiarize yourself with the work of the Senate, and it is my hope that you will find a group of hardworking, dedicated, and understanding students – your peers – committed to making your experience at Saint Joseph’s the best that it can be.


The USS strives to be representative of all students within our community. Please, never hesitate to reach out to help us do so more effectively. We invite conversation, and we encourage you to use the resources available throughout our University.
