Kenyon College Campus Senate
About the Campus Senate
The Campus Senate, established in Article II of the Campus Government Constitution, is a body comprised of faculty members, administrators, and elected student representatives. It "serve[s] as a forum in which students, faculty, and administrative officers communicate and consider matters of general concern to the College," including student organizations and extracurricular activites, classes, living areas, and the regulation of student life. The Senate is the governing body of campus life, and its legislative proposals are ratified and enacted by the President of the College.
In October 2010 the Senate distributed a survey to ascertain frequency and patterns of tobacco use, as well as opinions about tobacco use on the Kenyon campus. The results have allowed the Senate to better assess the merits of policy proposals regarding smoking on the college campus. Included below are the data files for student, faculty, and staff responses, as well as a brief analysis of some of the survey data.
