Collection Summary: Agitation for student government began in the early 1930's on the River Falls campus. As envisioned by the students, the Student Senate would be a council of class officers and faculty advisors. This organization would be concerned with assembly programs, Homecoming and other activities. The constitution of the Student Senate was adopted on May 20, 1937, by a vote of 386-5. The main purpose of the Senate is to give students a voice in the administrative decisions concerning the University. The Senate also coordinates and allocates funds for various student activities and organizations.
