  • provide a means of student expression and activity appropriate for such an organization
  • encourage/promote interest in college affairs and activities
  • make aware student needs, opinions, and attitudes
  • promote and develop activities that enrich social, cultural, and academic life at Parkland

ELECTIONS:  Campus-wide elections are held in fall/spring semesters for Student Government offices of: president, vice president, treasurer, secretary, and 10 senators. All students may be eligible for offices and Senate posts, and may serve as a director or member of a board or committee.

OFFICES: Student Government exercises all student body legislative functions and implements legislation enacted by the Senate. The Student Government president has veto rights over the Senate, but the Senate can override a presidential veto by a two-thirds affirmative vote of the body.
