Executive Branch

The ASG Executive Branch is led by the student body President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary, who are elected by undergraduate students each spring. These elected leaders are joined by Chief of Staff and Freshman Leadership Forum Coordinator (each appointed by the executives) as well as the Chair of Senate and Chief Justice (each elected within their own branch) to form the ASG Executive Council. The Executive Council votes on appropriations within the Executive Budget and sets ASG priorities, initiatives, and goals. Beyond the Executive Council, this branch also includes the Executive Cabinet; a group of appointed student leaders that advocates, programs, and addresses student concerns across a wide range of areas pertinent to the undergraduate student experience. The Executive Council meets weekly to gain updates on initiatives and discuss various issues. The Executive Cabinet meets bi-monthly. The eight Executive Council members must serve a constitutionally-defined number of office hours each week and are compensated for their time.


The ASG Senate is a 50-member, campus elected body that advocates and legislates various university issues and concerns. Senators are undergraduate students elected to represent their peers in ASG’s legislative branch. Elections in the spring semester elect Senators based off their college of enrollment, while vacancy elections select Senators at-large. In addition, four Senate seats are allocated strictly for first-year students and one is allocated for international students. The Senate is led by the Chair of Senate, who serves as the 51st Senator and is elected to a one-year term each spring from within the Senate body. Senate meets weekly and its meetings are open for the university community to attend. Senators serve their student body by passing resolutions and bills, including funding bills, intent on improve the student experience at the university.


Judicial (ASGJ) has three primary responsibilities: oversee and administer ASG elections, interpret ASG Code and Constitution, and investigate ASG Agents who have violated the ASG Standard of Ethics clause. ASGJ is managed by a Chief Justice and includes eight Associate Justices and two proxies, all who are nominated by the ASG President and confirmed by the Senate. Justices serve a three-year term, while proxies serve one-year terms.
