Student Government

Get involved with Associated Students

asasu_lkogo

The Associated Students of ASU, ASU’s Official Student Government, exists to serve ASU’s students across the University for undergraduate and graduate students.

We provide a number of student-run services and advocate for student initiatives including student wellness, campus safety, community outreach, civic engagement and ASU pride and traditions. ASASU also facilitates the distribution of funding from the student activity fee to clubs and organizations across ASU. ASASU voices students' concerns and interests at the University, local, state and national levels and provides students with experience and training through active political participation.

ASU Student Governments

ASASU is made up of the five student governments of Arizona State University: the Undergraduate Student Governments at the Downtown Phoenix, Polytechnic, Tempe and West campuses, and the Graduate and Professional Student Association.

ASU students have the power to create dramatic, systematic change in our communities through who we elect to represent us.

Elections for Undergraduate Student Governments and the Graduate and Professional Student Association will be held March 28 & 29, 2023. Make your voice heard and vote!

ASASU Council of Presidents (COP)

COP is comprised of the five elected Presidents from each of the student government organizations.

Our mission is to put the students as the top priority in providing service to the university by delivering leadership that enhances the Sun Devil way of life, amplifies the voices of students especially the traditionally underrepresented, and embodies zealous advocacy for the unique interests of students.

Every year, the COP creates a list of priorities that enumerates a comprehensive, but not exhaustive, list of advocacy items that embodies the vision on how it wants to furnish its mission and pledge of service to the students of Arizona State University. 

Charter and Goals
