Student Senate

The Student Senate helps students shape decisions that affect their education and experiences while they develop leadership skills.  The mission of the Student Senate is:

Our goal as the Student Senate is to serve and represent the student body of Asnuntuck Community College.  In addition, the Senate promotes good citizenship and harmonious relationships with the college community.  The Senate also provides students with opportunities to participate in leadership and college governance.

What does this actually mean?

The Senate helps to promote extracurricular activities, various student groups, seasonal student functions, fundraisers and improvements to the school.  We also represent the student body in assorted committees, including the Curriculum and Standards Committee, The College Council and the Asnuntuck Community College Foundation.

What does it take to be in the Student Senate?

Members should have the drive to help and represent their fellow students, work together as a team and display the ability to be a leader on and off campus.

To learn more about upcoming activities and becoming a student activities committee member, check out the Student Activities webpage.

Wednesday March 25th: CSCU Rally Day

Systemwide rallies will be taking place at public colleges and universities throughout the state. The goals of this effort are to encourage student discussion, disseminate information that pertains to the ever-declining state appropriations for higher education, and to engage students in the legislative process and helping them understand the importance of appealing to our state legislature about increasing funding for the CSCU System!

At ACC, we plan to do tabling from 11:30am to 12:30pm.

Thursday March 26th: Systemwide Media Event

This event will take place at Capital Community College’s Degnan Hall, Room 1126, 11th floor, 950 Main Street, Hartford at 12:30pm. Students will be wearing red to show a unified front. This event seeks to unite students, faculty members and staff in a demonstration of support for Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU).  The event will immediately follow the Board of Regents meeting scheduled for the same location, thus uniting the various constituencies with the System Office staff members and Regents who serve as their leaders.  Together, we will show a unified front as we appeal to legislators to increase funding for public higher education. This event is designed not only to ask legislators to increase funding for CSCU for the coming academic year (thereby reducing the potentially devastating impact of an approximately $48 million budget shortfall); we are also seeking to begin redirecting the recent downward trend of state appropriations for higher education by reminding our leaders of the true cost of failing to give the workforce of tomorrow the education it desires and requires to achieve future success.

We will be meeting at ACC at 11 am. Please contact Tommi DeMichael to RSVP. 

Wednesday April 15th: Letter Writing Forum

The purpose of this event is to encourage students to share their stories regarding tuition cutbacks and higher education with their representatives. Through email and letters, we want to remain in the legislators' minds this session. The student voice matters!

ACC will be giving students who participate in this event a tee shirt in anticipation that they will wear it to the April 29th event.

Wednesday April 29th: CSCU Day at the Capitol

This event will take place at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford. There will be a reception from 1-3pm in the Old Judiciary Room but the current understanding is that there will be opportunities for student interaction with legislations in the hours beforehand as well.

ACC is planning to reserve a bus to transport students.
