Diversity and Inclusion 

This committee serves as the uniting voice of diverse groups here on campus. They also oversee the implementation of the Student Senate Diversity Requirement by the GRAD Initiative issued by Provost Margaret Winters & the Wayne State Board of Governors. This Committee works directly with the Associate Provost for Diversity & Inclusion Dr. Chamblee in order to provide critical resources that make Wayne State University more inclusive to all different communities. This Project Group will work at hand on issues directly related to LGBQTA, Gender & Sexuality, Race, Religion, and various other components that make up WSUs diverse campus.

Campus Saftey

The Campus Safety Project Groups aims to safeguard the safety measures provided by the University and improve upon them. The group spreads the awareness of sexual assault and educates the community on domestic violence. Overlooking Title IX initiatives, the Campus Safety Project Group works for peer-to-peer education, orientation presentations, and other resources/programs. One of the major goals of the Campus Safety Project Group is to establish a Sexual Assault Hotline. 

Course Scheduling

The goal of this project group is too make scheduling for classes as simple as possible for students. Often times students students run into roadblocks while scheduling classes...required courses are only offered one semester, class times overlap by only a few minutes or there is limited variety of dates and times offered. Our objective is to figure out why these roadblocks occur and then help eliminate them.

Economic Development

This project group is centered on enhancing the business community relations with Wayne State University. A special focus is the promotion of both on-campus and off-campus dining operating hours. Members will be required to work together to formulate a plan of action to approach the local dining businesses. Students have been interested in late-night dining options as well as extension of weekend business hours. The overarching goal of this project group is to enhance the availability and quality of late-night and weekend dining and life on the WSU campus. Within the last few years, there have been significant improvements in dining options, but much change is still needed. The importance of making our university more “student-friendly” cannot be understated; active participation is encouraged in order to alleviate the problems that many WSU students face on a daily basis. 

SET Scores

Student Evaluation of Teaching (SET) scores are ratings of Professors and TA's at Wayne State University that students fill out for courses at the end of a semester. Similar to "RateMyProfessor" on the internet, SET scores used to published in our university's newspaper, The South End. These scores became available to students through the '14-'15 Student Senate. In the '15-'16 school year, this project group will focus on implimtation and feedback of the SET scores.

Public Relations Committee

The primary objective of the Public Relations Committee is to promote Wayne State Student Senate.  This committee will work to build a stronger relationship between Student Senate and the student body.  In hopes to educate more people about how Student Senate works and what it does.  By doing this, it is our hope to attract more students to be involved in student government.  The PRC also wants students to understand how to bring issues that they may have to Student Senate.  Students have the opportunity to address their concerns by attending committee meetings and/or Student Senate meetings, by visiting with a representative during his/her office hours, or by submitting their concern in the suggestion box located on the Student Senate website.
