ASUW Senate: Session XXX

Attendance Policy

Senators are allowed two unexcused absences per Quarter.

An “excused” absence is one in which you communicate with the Membership Coordinator at least 24 hours in advance to let them know of your absence and set up a proxy. An “unexcused” absence is one in which you do not communicate with any members of Senate leadership and/or do not set up a proxy, and you are absent from the Senate meeting.

Violation of the attendance policy can result in becoming “inactive”, or temporary suspension of your voting privileges. If you are in need of accommodations in order to remain in compliance with the attendance policy, please feel free to reach out to anyone in Senate Leadership. We are here to help and want to see you all succeed!


You can arrange for another senator (a friend or your Committee Chair) to fill in your spot and vote for you if you know you cannot attend a meeting. Before filling out the proxy form, please let the Membership Coordinator know that somebody will proxy for you by 5:00 PM on Monday.
