About Student Senate

Our Mission

The mission of Century College Student Senate is to build leadership skills, good citizenship, and communication between students, administration, faculty, and the community. To represent all students at Century College, mainly acting as an advocate between the administration and the student body.

Our Purpose

The Student Senate works to improve the quality of education and campus life for Century students. One way we accomplish this is by influencing the College’s decision-making process and working as a liaison between the student body, the administration, and the faculty.

To address all concerns of students, the Student Senate considers not only campus issues but state legislation as well. Through participation with the Minnesota State College Student Association (MSCSA), the Century Student Senate has a direct channel to the State level.
