The Earlham Student Senate (ESS) is the primary decision-making body of the ESG.

The Senate is comprised of student representatives from: each class, each residential community, international students, student athletes, and Student Sustainability Corps members. The aforementioned groups are all volunteers, serve as Senators with voting power in the Senate and represent the student body on standing committees. The ESG Process Keepers serve as the para-professional administrative facilitators for Senate and the Constitutional Review Committee oversees the annual review of the ESG Constitution.
