BUSPH Student Senate

Student Senate Mission Statement:

As a reflection of the mission and values of BUSPH, the mission of the Student Senate is to connect students to the SPH community, develop student engagement on campus and ignite student led community action. 

We seek to foster a respectful, collaborative, diverse and inclusive community within SPH to promote connection and holistic student success; to hold the faculty, staff and university community accountable to the mission and values of SPH by developing channels for student voices; and to ignite positive change beyond our academic walls through engaging with people, communities and institutions to promote justice, human rights and equity.

We accomplish this by:

  • Creating social, educational and professional spaces for students to connect with: fellow students, alumni, BU graduate students outside SPH and public health students outside of BU SPH
  • Equipping student organizations to collaborate on events and initiatives
  • Advocating for resources to aid academic success of students
  • Gathering and representing student concerns and evaluations to the faculty, staff and university community
  • Advocating for and monitoring timely responses to student feedback
  • Supporting student initiated projects
  • Providing and promoting opportunities to serve at SPH and in the local community
