The UNMC Student Senate exists for the purpose of influencing University policy and promoting the interests of all students attending UNMC. As the official representative of the student body, the Senate consists of senators from each educational unit of UNMC. Class presidents or vice-presidents automatically serve as senate representatives upon election. At-large senators are elected each year in November by their fellow students in Allied Health Professions, Graduate Studies, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Public Health. The president of UNMC Student Senate serves as a non-voting member of the Board of Regents of the University of Nebraska.
The UNMC Student Senate office is located on the second floor of Williams Science Hall. Meetings are held monthly and are open to all students and to the public. If you have questions about the Student Senate, please contact the current president or faculty advisor.
