Model Senate at Goucher College

A group of political science majors at Goucher College created the U.S. Model Senate program as an educational tool to improve high school students’ understanding of the legislative process in the American government and to encourage their political engagement. Each student will be assigned to play the role of a real U.S. Senator and will participate in a day long model senate conference which will be held at Goucher College. Students will participate in floor sessions, introduce legislation, mark up legislation in committee, and attend party caucuses. They will get a sense of what it is like to be a U.S. Senator and leave with a better understanding of the country’s legislative system.

Friday, February 21, 2020 is the date of this year’s Model Senate. 

Registration forms are now available and are being accepted.
