Associated Students of Willamette University

About Us

Welcome to the ASWU Website!

ASWU stands for Associated Students of Willamette University.  Its main role is to improve the Willamette campus and voice the concerns of students. ASWU works with matters such as the annual budget, changes in the Willamette student constitution, and individual and committee projects. ASWU officers are comprised of elected students voted on each spring by the entire student body. ASWU policies and procedures are directed by two governing documents:

The ASWU Constitution 2012-2013

The ASWU Bylaws 2012-2013

The ASWU Senate is comprised of elected students voted on each spring by class for the sophomore, junior, and senior Senator positions and in the fall for freshman Senator positions. Each class has five Senators that act as representatives at Senate meetings, which takes place on Thursdays at 7:00 pm in Montag Den. Senate meetings are open to the campus community, and all students are encouraged to attend.
