Student government at JCC

If you’re interested in representing your fellow students and learning about the politics of Campus Life, join Student Senate.

Student Senate is the officially recognized student governing body of Jamestown Community College. Student Senate represents the student body and the community, and has a direct voice in all student affairs and many college activities.

Student Senate operates on budgets allocated by the Faculty Student Association. Senate charters clubs and organizations and allocates funds. Senate also serves as an advisory board to the president of JCC, bringing attention to student concerns and making recommendations so that we continue to meet our commitment to students.

Be a student trustee

The student trustee is one of 15 voting members on the Jamestown Community College Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees is charged with upholding the mission of the college. The student trustee's primary responsibility is to act in the interest of the college by being especially mindful of student interests and to share those interests with the board.

The student trustee is expected to attend monthly Board of Trustees meetings, may be appointed to sub-committees formed by the board, and regularly gives a brief oral report to the board on issues related to Student Senate, student life, and campus events. Additionally, the student trustee is a non-voting member of the Student Senate and is expected to attend weekly Student Senate meetings during activity hour on Fridays.

Elections and eligibility

The student trustee is elected each spring during a general election held at all sites, and full-time students shall be allowed to serve a maximum of two academic years. Students eligible to run for student trustee must:

  • be a full-time student at Jamestown Community College,

  • have completed 24 credit hours (sophomore status) at time of induction (June).
