The purpose of the Senate Apprenticeship Program is to serve as a leadership development opportunity for first year Marshall University students, and act as an extension of the Student Senate by increasing interest in and knowledge of the existence of the Student Government Association by educating its members in the duties, responsibilities, and processes of Student Government Association in order to develop more effective, knowledgeable future Student Government Association representatives.

Senate Apprentices will be assigned to “shadow” a Senator from their respective college, (if available) and will be taught the ins and outs of SGA including how the student governing process works, how to draft bills and resolutions, and all other aspects related to Senate membership. Upon review of the Judiciary Committee at the end of their tenure as an Apprentice, they will be given preference for full Senate membership in their second semester. See full rules below:
