Who Represents Me?

If you are a professional student, you are represented by a Representative, a Student Senator, or both. Take a look at the tables on this page labeled “PSG Congresspersons” and “Student Senators.” Each table includes a Council or college designation for every person listed, which corresponds to the program that person represents. You should be able to find the person(s) who represent you on these tables.

If you are from a small academic program, you may not be represented by a specific Council. For example, Master of Music students are not represented by a council because there is no student council in the School of Music that represents Master of Music students. Over 20 professional programs are not represented by a student council in their college. To ensure these students are represented, the Student Senator from their college has the power to appear in Congress on their behalf. For example, Master of Music students are represented by graduate/professional Student Senators from the College of Liberal Arts, which includes the School of Music.

If you are a student not represented by a Council, you should reach out to your Student Senator. You may also reach out to the Speaker of Congress.
