The Medical Center Student Senate (MCSS) exists for the purpose of influencing University policy and promoting the interests of all students attending the Medical Center. As the official representative of the student body, the Senate consists of senators from each educational unit of UNMC. Class presidents or vice-presidents automatically serve as senate representatives upon election. At-large senators are elected each year in November by their fellow students in Allied Health Professions, Graduate Studies, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Public Health. The president of MCSS serves as a non-voting member of the Board of Regents of the University of Nebraska.
The MCSS office is located in Bennett Hall. Meetings are held monthly and are open to all students and to the public.
