Legislative Branch

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.
