About Us

The Undergraduate Senate is the designated representative for Stanford undergraduates. Comprised of 15 undergraduate students from all majors and classes, the Senate is responsible for a myriad of projects within the ASSU system. The UGS Senate meets weekly on Thursdays at 8:00pm PT in Nitery 209 and on Zoom here. Students may subscribe to the senate’s public email list here.

Our Mission

The Senate’s mission aligns overall with the ASSU’s three pillars:

Advocacy The Senate strives to be a representative to University administrators on hot-button issues affecting the undergraduate community ranging from Title IX to sustainability.

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

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