Student Senate

The Voice of the Students

Student Senator's are connected, involved current students who are leaders in our community, spanning a wide variety of academic focuses and co-curricular interests and are passionate about student life. 

Serving as a senator on the CWC Student Senate is a unique experience that will provide you the opportunity to serve your fellow students, the ability to improve the college experience, provide valuable input to campus-wide changes, and be a member of a great team.  The work you do in the Senate will be rewarding and you will make a difference for students at Central Wyoming College. 

The purpose of the Senate is to promote an active student government, better relationships among the student body, and to provide an avenue by which student needs and desires are transmitted to the administration, as well as provide educational and non-academic entertainment for students. In general, the Senate sets all policies governing student body activities.
