ASUO is made-up of students, representing and elected by their peers. From helping set the I-Fee and allocating funds for student groups, to providing resources for club leaders, we are here to support all UO students.
The Associated Students of the University of Oregon (ASUO) strives to provide for the social, cultural, educational, and physical development of its members and for the advancement of their individual and collective interests both within the university and the community at large.
Branches of ASUO
The ASUO is structured into three branches, each with separate roles designated by the ASUO constitution. The ASUO Executive Branch consists of the ASUO Student Body President, the Student Body Vice President, and up to 24 appointed students who serve as Executive Cabinet Members. The Legislative Branch consists of a 24-member Student Senate and four Finance Committees with 7-12 student members each. The Constitution Court, a five-member body, makes up the Judicial Branch.
The ASUO serves as a hub of student leadership and community engagement. There are hundreds of opportunities to engage with the ASUO from serving as an elected official, participating on a university committee, to sharing a common interest with an ASUO-Recognized Student Organization. The ASUO is committed to a culture of diverse opinions and expressions, teamwork, and collaborative leadership.
It's election season! ASUO Elections occur annually, in order to fulfill officer vacancies and to collect opinions of the student body on ballot measures and potential amendments to the ASUO constitution.
