Senate Committees

All ASWU Senators are required to serve on at least one committee. It is through these committees that ASWU is able to voice the needs of the student body through various oversight processes.

Whips are the chairs for their respective class senate cohorts, and facilitate weekly caucus meetings to assure their class is informed of Senate discourse. In these meetings, whips discuss the agenda, form questions for guests, and talk about what they have to say about different items of discussion so they are able to speak to different opinions of the class in a clear and concise manner. Whips are also in charge of class outreach regarding general senate information.

The ASWU Club Approval Committee:

New clubs and organizations are approved by ASWU’s Club Approval Committee. This committee is advised by the Associate Director of Student Activities, Emily Morris, and meets once a week. During these meetings, the Club Approval Committee reviews applications and documents submitted by new groups looking to become official clubs or organizations. Senators on this committee typically also serve in the ASWU Finance Board.

The ASWU Finance Board:

Financial requests that are less than $1,500 and made by student clubs and organizations are reviewed by ASWU’s Finance Board. This board is headed by the ASWU Treasurer, accompanied by other ASWU senators, and meets three times every semester. During these meetings, the Finance Board analyzes budget requests alongside ASWU Finance Precedents to ensure that relevant and equitable funds are provided to all requesting clubs and organizations.
