The ASMSU Senate consists of twenty one (21) senators elected from their respective Colleges. Seats are apportioned as follows:
|Arts and Architecture||2|
|Letters and Science||4|
Senate leadership consists of the Senate President and the Senate Vice President who are appointed by the Senate from the Senate body in the spring following the installment of the new ASMSU President and Vice President. The ASMSU President and Vice President are elected by the student body, and serve to represent and advise MSU and the Board of Regents on issues that directly affect students of MSU.
The Senate is the student organization responsible for representing the interests of the student body. Student concerns can be brought before the Senate in person or through an elected senator. A request to take a position on an issue or request for action may be presented in the form of a resolution or a bill passed by a majority or 2/3 vote of the senate respectively. Further duties of the Senate include acting as a liaison between ASMSU committees and the Senate and coordinating activities between the two. The Senate is also required to review annual budget requests from ASMSU committees in the spring and develop a balanced budget for the next fiscal year.
