conditions for effective learning and fair treatment of the students;
actions of the Student Senate may be reviewed by the Faculty
Senate at the request of the president of the University or any
member of the Faculty Senate.
It cooperates with the Alumni Association and University Support Staff Senate to achieve common goals and objectives.
