Associated Students of ASU Needs your voice

Associated Students of ASU needs your voice

Leave your mark at ASU!

Being involved in a University Board and Committee allows students an opportunity to shape the ASU experience, share their ideas, and represent their peers.

University Boards and Committees constitute a branch of the Associated Students of ASU and are directly appointed by the ASASU Council of Presidents (COP). Each University Board and Committee is made up of members from each campus and shares reports and updates directly to their USG or GPSA President.
