Student Congress (STUCO) is the self-governing body for all Doane students. Student Congress represents and promotes student interests and opinions and allocates funds to campus-recognized organizations from student fees. Student Congress also sponsors special events and is invited to meet bi-annually with the Doane University Board of Trustees as representatives of the student body. The student body elects president, vice president, and upper-class senators in the spring. Three first-year students are elected during the fall semester to serve as senators.
