The Senate also serves as an intermediary between faculty, administration, and the student body.
Senators and Student Association Officers are student representatives. Part of the responsibility of the Student Association and the Senate is to be the voice of the student body to the Roberts community, including the faculty and administration.
Students must maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.0 and be free of serious disciplinary action during the previous semester (excluding summer terms) to be eligible to hold Student Association or class positions of leadership.
