As the recognized student government at the University of Oregon, ASUO serves as the “dive in” point for student leadership and engagement at UO and in the greater community.  All UO students who pay the Incidental Fee are members of ASUO.  Student Officials who are both elected and appointed make up ASUO’s 3-branch structure of legislative, executive and judicial. 

Over 220 student groups are currently recognized by ASUO, each of which provides experiential opportunities for students to engage around issues, interests, and identity.  These student organizations are funded and administered by ASUO. Members of the Executive Cabinet coordinate student organization recognition and also manage the appointment process for student participants on university-wide committees.  Exec also coordinates several issue-driven campaigns which often overlap with university initiatives.  Senate, ASUO’s legislative branch, distributes and manages the nearly $16 million incidental fund and weighs-in on community issues through legislation called policy resolution.  The judicial branch, or Constitution Court serves as ASUO’s Court of Appeals and also reviews/approves all rules, regulations and policies that arise out of legislative or judicial branches.

The University Senate is the representative body of the University of Oregon. Though its powers are delegated to it by the statutory faculty, senators are elected or appointed from all of the constituencies of the university community: faculty, students, officers of research, officers of administration, librarians, and staff. The senate's primary responsibility is to insure academic excellence by collaborating with the administration to pass legislation and policies relating to academic matters, but it sometimes addresses issues of broader concern to the campus community by passing resolutions. The senate is also responsible for administering the university committees, so once new faculty and OAs get settled into their positions and are starting to think about university service work, they should check in with us to talk about where they might plug in, either on a committee or in the senate itself.
