Christian Dykson (He/Him)

51st President of ASCSU

Christian Dykson is the 51st President of ASCSU. The President acts as the chief representative for the association, meeting regularly with the CSU administration and citywide officials to ensure that students are represented at all levels of campus and city administration.

Christian is a 3rd-year undergraduate student studying Political Science, Natural Resource Economics, and Spanish at Colorado State University. Christian served as the 2020-2021 ASCSU Speaker of the Senate and is honored and humbled to step into his newly elected role as 2021-2022 ASCSU President, holding steadfast to the 3 core values of radical inclusion, transparency, and stewardship.

Christian’s purpose is to be a servant-leader, with a clear voice of reason and the ability to draw out the best in every person. He is committed to creating an ecosystem of love, dignity, and respect, where every person is empowered, engaged, and uplifted. He envisions a world united in its diversity of thought and expression – not in full agreement on every detail, but fully committed to a shared noble cause. He has a heart for humanity and a strong desire to be the catalyst that unleashes the potential of his generation.

Christian realizes that if he doesn’t know you, your story, and your needs, he can’t authentically and honestly serve you, which is why he is emphasizing outreach, intentional listening, and storytelling as three foundational principles within his Cabinet.
