An Academic Assembly Standing Committee is a permanent committee that is established by the MSU Constitution to consider a certain subject. The establishment of Standing Committees allows work to be delegated by the Academic Assembly, allowing for a more detailed examination of a topic than could be given to it by the Academic Assembly.
Standing Committees can invite third parties to their meetings to discuss the topic with members.
Standing Committee members have the opportunity to develop expertise in the subject their Standing Committee deals with and to interact more closely with the Executive and the student body.
The Student Senate has the following Standing Committees, namely:
- Student Academic Representation Review Committee
- Student Engagement & Feedback Committee
