Senators are elected or appointed from each of the academic colleges. Senators serve one-year terms beginning each April.
Each senator serves on several university or Senate standing committees. These committees include faculty and staff representatives and are part of the university's system of shared governance. Senators attend all Students' Association Senate meetings and meetings for their assigned committees.
Senators hold at least two office hours per week in the Students' Association office along Main Street in the Student Union. Students are welcome to visit the office and talk with senators about concerns or problems affecting the student experience at SDSU.
Additional senator duties are outlined in the Students' Association Bylaws.

Become a Students' Association Senator
Elections for Students' Association senators and the student body president and vice president are held in March. Petitions for the election generally become available in February. In order to run in the senatorial election, a student must file an application and petition including signatures from at least 50 students in their academic college (25 signatures for senatorial candidates from the Graduate School). Information about Students' Association elections will be available in the Rabbit Report leading up to the election and on the Students' Association website.
Occasionally, Senate seats will become vacant during the academic year. In these cases, seats will be filled by Senators-At-Large appointed by the Students' Association Board of Directors. Senator-At-Large candidates must file an application and petition including signatures from at least 50 SDSU students regardless of their academic college. When Senator-At-Large positions are open, information will be included in the Rabbit Report and the Students' Association website.
