Student Government

Student Senate


We are dedicated student leaders aiming to unify the student body through active participation, educational advancement and community involvements


Northwestern Health Sciences University Student Senate fosters the enhancement of student and university experience to prepare and inspire the next generation of healthcare professionals.


The Student Senate represents the student body by promoting community on campus, coordinating student activities, and advocating for student concerns and needs.  Senate representatives serve on many University committees and provide feedback and recommendations to the administration on various initiatives, projects and strategic goals.  

Within the Senate, numerous committees exist to address a variety of student needs.  Various activities are held throughout the year, giving students an opportunity to socialize and interact with one another.  The Senate utilizes the student activity fee to help support these activities and organizations.  

The Senate includes representatives from each class in each program, and elections for officers are held annually.  To get involved or give feedback to Student Senate, go to the Student Senate website.
