Boise State Administration Statement about ASBSU
The Associated Students of Boise State University (ASBSU) is a student-led organization that facilitates educational, intellectual, social and cultural engagement and advocates on behalf of the interests of students at the university.
Boise State University administration is not involved with the selection of ASBSU student representatives or the operation of the student government. Representatives are elected by the student body to a one-year term annually in spring.
ASBSU has its own policies and processes, created and carried out by students. As is common practice with university student governments, university administration does not weigh in on the governance of ASBSU. All fee-paying students of the university comprise the Associated Students.
Just as we encourage students to exercise their constitutional right to vote in national and local elections, we encourage them to lift their voices in electing their student leaders as well. These elections will take place in March or April 2021.
The Student Assembly exists to provide student representation for all academic departments and concentrated student populations, to disseminate important information to students, and to deliver student opinion. Assembly Members are elected by the executive committee through an application process based on their concentrated population. The Vice President represents all students as the speaker of the house in the Assembly and representing them in executive team meetings.
The Student Assembly meetings for the 2020-2021 school year will be held remotely via Zoom on Wednesday evenings from 4:30-6:00pm. If you would like to listen in on our decision-making processes, please feel free to join the call!
