Student Governance: Student Senate
Pima Community College has Student Governance representatives across the district, known as Student Senate. Participation in Student Senate is an effective way to bring issues and concerns to College administration, while sharing what is happening at each of the campuses. Each of the six campuses (Community, Desert Vista, Downtown, East, Northwest and West) plus PimaOnline has two representatives elected to the Student Senate; elections take place every spring semester for the upcoming academic year.
Credit/Degree seeking students: Must maintain at least a 2.5 GPA each semester, be enrolled in at least 6 credits each semester, be in Good Academic Standing and be free from Code of Conduct violations.
Adult Basic Education/Non-Credit students: Must maintain an 85% attendance rate in courses and be free from Code of Conduct violations.
From these 14 student representatives three are elected to be part of the All College Council, which makes recommendations to the Chancellor to improve student success and support the mission of the College. One of those three then is elected to serve as the Student Representative to the Pima Community College Governing Board.Learn how to get involved by contacting the campus Student Life Office.
