Advocacy. Ensure students can afford the rising cost of education.

  • Work with administration and legislators to guarantee any tuition increases are affordable and predictable for students while maintaining a high quality of education.
  • Fight for financial aid increases to help offset rising tuition costs, so students aren’t left behind.
  • Insist student fees are allocated based on student needs.

Engagement. Promote ASUW and expand the services we provide.

  • Ensure ASUW remains financially sustainable and accountable to students.
  • Create “State of the University” videos so students can see and hear what is affecting their education.
  • Strengthen connections with First Year Programs to educate incoming freshmen and transfer students about how ASUW can serve them.
