Attend a Meeting

SSA is your student association, and we love to hear from you. Learn more about how to participate in a meeting and join us at one!

SSA has many meetings throughout the semester. Each of them are listed on our events page, along with details about the meeting location (or call-in information) and the meeting materials.

The University Student Senate is considered the main meeting for SSA business and policy. There are also several committees under the Senate that meet separately and discuss more specific issues.

SSA meetings are all open to the public. That means all meeting materials are made accessible to the public at least 24 hours prior to a meeting, and all are free to attend all in-person and virtual meetings.
