The Steering Committee provides coordination for the various issues, legislative activities, and program involvements of the ASUW Executive and Legislative branches. It serves to pursue ASUW recommendations and actions that are referred to, or require action by the University Trustees, the faculty, or administrative units of the University.
The Steering Committee refers proposed ASUW legislation to ASUW standing or special committees for specified action or recommendation prior to final consideration by the Senate. It may recommend the procedure for implementing consideration of ASUW decisions, actions, or legislation after final action by the Senate, and the committee provides regular reports to the Senate on the status or final outcome of all matters that require action by officials outside of ASUW. The committee has the power to call Senators before its membership to discuss alleged violations of the ASUW Rules and Procedures, Article III, Section 1 Absent Voting Members.
The Steering Committee consists of the ASUW Vice President, who shall serve as chairperson; the ASUW President; the ASUW Executive Assistants, who shall serve in an ex-officio capacity; the ASUW President Pro Tempore; the ASUW Parliamentarian; the ASUW Sergeant at Arms; two (2) ASUW Senators; and the ASUW Advisor.
