The Associated Students of Boise State University, or ASBSU, is beginning elections for the Academic Senate for next year. ASBSU is Boise State University’s official student government, with the purpose of facilitating educational, intellectual, social, and cultural engagement at our university. It also advocates for student interests and needs, with different branches and positions that accomplish this.
The Academic Senate consists of two senators from each college at the university, who represent and advocate for fellow students within their college. Along with attending weekly ASBSU meetings where all the branches meet to do this, senators also have monthly meetings with the college dean or associate dean. They can also write and vote on pieces of legislation that come through ASBSU, and collaborate with student organizations and university administration to accomplish this.
