The most valuable asset of the university, our students embody the creative and intellectual energy of The New School. With interests that extend across every field of human endeavor, they have an active role in all aspects of campus life.
The University Student Senate is the official student government of The New School. Elected from all schools of the university, the Senate works with the senior leaders, the faculty, and the staff to improve the university in all areas. The officers of the Senate meet at least monthly with the president and other senior leaders to discuss and work on critical issues affecting the quality of the academic and social life of the students. Guided by a constitution adopted in 2007, the University Student Senate welcomes participation from the entire student community.
