Within the KU Student Senate, there are four legislative committees that make up the backbone of the legislative branch. Each legislative cycle begins with a series of committee meetings, in which a bill passes in two committees before moving on to the Full Senate. The committees - Finance, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Student Rights, and University Affairs - are required for all senators, but any other students at KU can also vote within a committee. Voting rights are guaranteed at the first meeting of the semester, or if a student attends two consecutive meetings.

Legislative committees meet every other Wednesday night. The schedule and meeting location can be found on our homepage or by clicking here.
