The ASUU Legislative Branch consists of the Senate and Assembly. The Senate is composed of 18 Senators, one elected from each college to serve one-year terms. In addition to writing legislation that positively impacts student life at the University, Senators chair College Student Councils, student governing bodies for each individual college that advocate for the student experience within their college and appropriate funds for student travel. The Assembly is composed of 36 representatives elected from each college at the University in proportion to the number of students enrolled in that college. Assembly Representatives work in conjunction with Senators on writing legislation for the general student body, and independently work to appropriate funds to the various student groups and organizations on campus for event planning, marketing materials, and other aspects of campus community-building.
The Senate is one of two houses in ASUU’s legislative branch. The Senate is responsible for representing students by allocating funds to College Student Councils (CSCs), reviewing proposed legislation, overseeing ASUU Executive Branch activities, serving on the University Academic Senate and various assorted committees, and working on University policy issues that impact students. Senators are elected each spring by the students of the colleges which they represent and serve for a term of one year.
There are 18 seats in the Senate, each of which represents the University’s different colleges. The Senate elects its own chair.
Current Vacant Senate Seats:
- College of Architecture + Planning
- School for Cultural and Social Transformation.
If you are a student enrolled in either of those colleges and have interest in filling a seat, please email Kaitlin McLean (above).
