Student Senate & Caucuses

Union Theological Seminary boasts a rich array of student organizations, which are designed to meet the needs and address the concerns of a variety of student demographics and interests. Each official caucus has voting rights in the Student Senate, is accountable to the student body through reports given at Student Senate meetings, and receives a budget from the Student Senate. The student organizations provide a valuable avenue by which students may grow deeper in community and common purpose.
