- About UW
The Senate is comprised of 21 at-large Senators who represent the entire student body at the University of Wyoming. Senators are elected every spring semester and vacancies can open up at any point during the academic year. The Senate's minutes, legislation and working documents are all open to the public and can be accessed at any time! ASUW Senate Meetings are held every Tuesday at 7pm in the Wyoming Union Senate Chambers, and are open to the public.
ASUW is proud to have its own programs that are designed to assist the student population. These programs are initiatives originally established by ASUW with strong continuous support from the student government. Programs include Student Technical Services (STS), First-Year Senate, Non-Traditional Student Council, Student Legal Services, and United Multicultural Council. Sustainability Coalition is a partner of ASUW is a recognized groups across campus that ASUW works together with to achieve shared goals and values. Joining either a program or partner lets you work directly with ASUW and work towards shared values for the betterment of UW students!
Reaching out to your representatives provides you a way to have your voice heard! Through the student-at-large senator model, you can raise concerns about an issue, ask questions, and learn more about ASUW. This allows you to have a direct impact on legislation and have a voice within the Senate. Some senators also host office hours throughout the academic year, which we will update as the semester continues.
Throughout the semester, vacancies can arise within the Senate, and create opportunities for students to become directly involved in the ASUW Senate. Anyone can apply as long as they qualify based on the set standards. Vacancies are filled through an application process, interview by the ASUW Outreach, Programming, and Elections committee, and a confirmation vote by the Senate.
