The ASUW Legislative Branch is the ASUW Vice President and the ASUW Senate. The ASUW
Senate is comprised of 32 Senators who represent nine colleges and schools at UW.
The ASUW Legislative Branch directly represent the students by ensuring the efficient,
responsible, and coordinated functioning of student life and ASUW activities at the
University, through the enactment of legislation in the form of bills or resolutions.
The Senate is comprised of multiple committees all with various purposes in order
to accurately represent our fellow students.
The current breakdown of Senate seats are as follows:
Every Spring semester, all Senate seats are up for grabs. Check out the Elections Page for more information. However, vacancies happen and you can grab an empty seat at
any point of the semester when this happens. Check our Vacancies Page to see if we have any current vacancies. Lastly, you can join a committee as a student-at-large,
which means you even get to be a voting member! Check out our Committees Page for more information about them and how to apply.
