Senators are expected to attend Senate meetings and participate in the deliberations. They are encouraged to report Senate business to their respective constituents (faculty meetings, USG meetings, PSC meetings, etc.) as well as to solicit the views and opinions of constituents on issues which are before the Senate. They should be prepared to raise any item of concern to one or more of their constituents on the floor of the Senate.

Senators are also expected to serve on standing committees. 

From time to time, Senators are asked to attend open hearings which are scheduled by the Senate or one of its committees. At other times, Senators may be asked to serve on a committee as a representative of the Senate or to serve on an administrative committee to provide liaison between that committee and the Senate.
