Student Governance: Pima Aztec Student Senate (P.A.S.S.)
Pima Community College has Student Governance representatives across the district, known as Student Senate. Participation in P.A.S.S. 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 five campuses (Desert Vista, Downtown, East, Northwest and West) plus PimaOnline and Adult Basic Education/Non-credit has two representatives selected to the P.A.S.S.; selections take place every spring semester for the upcoming academic year.
From these 14 student representatives three (3) 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 (3) then is elected to serve as the Student Representative to the Pima Community College Governing Board. Learn more about the structure and functions of P.A.S.S.
