The ASCSU advocates for students on a University, local, state and national level and represents the student body on administrative campus committees, in addition to controlling funding for student clubs and organizations, providing resources for student programming, overseeing commercial activities and student services. Put simply, the primary objective of the ASCSU is to serve students wherever possible.
The ASCSU Constitution establishes a student government with elected officials modeled after the United State’s separation-of-powers and plural elected executive governance structure.
Each year ASCSU holds a regular election to choose it’s new Speaker of the Senate. All members of the Association, that is all undergraduate and graduate students at CSU, can vote. Regular elections are held in early April. Students vote on RamWeb, which guarantees fair, transparent and proportional elections results.
