The Student Senate at DSU is responsible for promoting the general welfare of the university and to serve as an organized medium for expressing student opinion on matters of general concern. 

Student Senate serves on many committees around campus such as Parking Committee, Diversity Committee, Student Success Committee, and Athletics Committee.

Weekly meetings take place at 5:45 pm over Zoom and in the Alumni Room. They are open to the public and accessible via the weekly agendas.
