There are 23 elected Senators in USUAA Assembly. Senators serve as liaisons and voice the student opinion in all business matters. Senators are elected by the student body during the UAA General Election (in fall and spring) or collect signatures through the Petition Packet process to join the Assembly.
Senators are members of two standing committees within USUAA. Standing committees include Activities, Rules, Student and Academic Affairs, Sustainability, and Legislative Affairs. Each standing committee coordinates programs, events, and activities to carry out the mission of USUAA.
