Senate

Senators are a part of the legislative branch of USG. The senate addresses issues pertaining to any aspect of the university and beyond. All senators serve on committees, which produce legislation relevant to the business of the committee. Legislation is discussed at biweekly senate meetings, which alternate with biweekly committee meetings.

 

All undergraduate students are invited and welcome to discuss any aspect of their undergraduate experience with the senators in their school or college.

 

Legislation (bills and resolutions) passed by the Undergraduate Student Government Senate is representative of the voice of undergraduate students.

 

Senators can help you with almost everything you can imagine when it comes to your overall experience at ASU. Funding for trips, events or programs you want to see initiated, student organizations you want to get involved with or launch — information about all these topics can be gleaned from your senators.

 Barrett Senator

EAC Chair

Kaiah Brown

Kaiah Brown is a sophomore from Eagar, Arizona, studying health sciences. She is in USGD because she is passionate about serving others, and this organization gives her an opportunity to turn that passion into tangible change at ASU. As an intern in USGD this past year, she got an inside look to the amazing student-driven work that is done in USGD and she knew that she had to be a part of it. Her past six years of student leadership throughout middle and high school made the transition to USGD fairly easy, especially because this organization works in a family-oriented way that she has prioritized her whole life.

Hi everyone! My name is Keala pronounced (Kay-luh) and I am one of the Senators for Watts College. I am passionate about increasing accessibility to resources for low income as well as first-generation college students, increasing educational opportunities for low income youth as well as gender equity. I have had the opportunity to be involved with ASU in a variety of roles and organizations including the Council of Coalitions, Resident Hall Association, Fraternity and Sorority Life, and Her Campus ASU. I love being involved and enjoy figuring out solutions to the problems we face in our community. I am really excited to be apart of USGD this year! Go Devils!
