ABSTRACT:

The Gustavus Adolphus College Student Senate collection contains minutes, financial information, administrative documents, correspondence, and others materials.  The bulk of the collection is made up of minutes and financial information, such as budget proposals and ledger sheets.  There is also administrative information including constitutions, committee reports and member lists.  The collection also holds correspondence, surveys, questionnaires, and conference information among many other materials.


HISTORICAL NOTE:

The Gustavus Adolphus College Student Senate began in 1942.  It was proceeded by The Forum (1919-1942) and before that the Students’ Council (1914-1919.)  According to the first constitution, its object was “to provide a means by which the student body may regulate student activities in conformity with college rules, give occasion for the practice amongst the student body of democratic self-government, and take potent and actual measures toward the elevation of the moral standard among students.”  Over the years, the purpose has changed slightly and now states that “The Senate exists to represent the will of the student body.  The Senate values community and strives to promote communication and collaboration between students, faculty, staff, and administrators while furthering policy interests of the student body.”

Currently membership consists of a Cabinet, Co-Presidents, Co-Presidents Elect, Administrative Director, Technology Director, Parliamentarian, Controller, Public Relations Chair, Finance Chair, Housing & Health Chair, Academic & Student Affairs Chair, Diversity Development Chair, Ombudsperson, Senate Speaker, one Senator from each residence hall (two from Norelius, Complex, and Off-Campus,) one Class Senator from each class, and an International Senator.
