Associated Students is your Student Government
The Associated Students of California State University, Monterey Bay is an organization that seeks to serve, empower, and represent students in all areas of student concern.
We seek to uphold our university’s commitment to its Vision Statement in providing higher education to the “diverse people of California, especially the working class, historically undereducated and low-income populations,” by advocating for affordable tuition and fees, and ensuring that student support services remain available as a means to ensure student retention and completion of higher education degrees.
Acknowledging the university’s commitment “to meet statewide and regional needs, specifically those involving both inner-city and isolated rural populations, and needs relevant to communities in the immediate Tri-County region (Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito Counties),” we recognize the necessity of being able to confront issues that extend beyond our campus community.
We will engage in an active role in the decisions, actions, and affairs of our university through advocacy and equitable governance.
The Student Senate is the ultimate governing authority for the Associated Students. The Senate has the power to create resolutions, veto the AS President, makes decisions on large financial requests, requested of AS (internally and externally), create officer positions and committees, and when the situation arises, impeach an officer. For more info on the AS Senate, see the Senate Page
The Appointed Officers are chosen by the Associated Students President upon his/her inauguration. These officers serve various tasks, from community& statewide affairs, to coordinating elections.
