- To hold legislative and executive branches accountable to standards set by the Constitution and subsequent legislation.
- To notify Senate 48 hours prior to the “final vote” on legislation if changes need to be made to the proposed action.
- To review the actions of Executive Board members at their discretion.
- To facilitate removal hearings and processes of ASWU Officers and Senators.
