ASCWU Position Information

In the winter 2020 quarter the student body voted to update the Constitution which governs ASCWU to include a Student Senate that will be represented by 23 elected student officers. Due to the changing landscape of the spring 2020 quarter and shortened quarter the Election Commission has voted to move forward with the election of the Executive Officer positions this quarter and continue planning and promotion of an election of the student senators during the fall 2020 quarter.
