The current TCU Constitution states that any candidate for president must be a current member of senate. While this is true, anyone interested in running for TCU President can run for senate the week before the presidential elections begin in order to be eligible for the presidency. So long as they are elected to senate that week, they are welcome to seek a candidacy for president regardless of the amount of time they have spent on senate.
However, the possibility of opening up the presidential elections to the general student body is something that Tufts Election Commission (ECOM) has discussed with the administration and will continue to do so in light of the recent uncontested election.
