Consulting

Resident Senator

Resident Senators currently serve as Student Senators and support Torchlight as consultants. They may review the content of Legislative Fellows, Analysts, and Database Editors to provide the nuanced perspective of a sitting Senator. They may also be asked to provide historical insight and recommendations to the Transparency Branch. They report directly to the Director of Legislative Affairs to ensure impartiality and may also be called upon to provide content recommendations to the Director using their internal knowledge of the Student Senate. Applicants can be expected to develop their critical thinking skills, editing capabilities, and help shape the student body’s understanding of the Student Government Association.
