Associated Students of
Washington State University Tri-Cities
Make an impact and get involved. The Associated Students of Washington State University Tri-Cities (ASWSUTC)
ASWSUTC consists of 30 officers that work between 8 to 25 hours a week to serve, represent, and advocate for the students. ASWSUTC has three main branches: Executive Branch, Legislative Branch, and Judicial Branch, as well as two standing boards: Student Entertainment Board and Election Board. We all have a common mission which is representing students, making sure that their voices are heard and improving their experience on campus. We do that through events, programs, senate resolutions, and bills. ASWSUTC always looks for passionate students who can help with this mission and reach out to other students, listen to their concerns, and be their liaisons. Our officers get to interact with WSU administration and community leaders as the students’ liaisons which improve their professional experience and help them in their future careers. Students can be part of ASWSUTC by applying to the current open positions or running for office during the General Election in February. The elected positions are: President, Vice-President, and Senators. All the other positions are appointed by the President and Vice-President and confirmed by the Senate.
Presidential Platform 2017-2018
This year is based on 5 major pillars: Innovation, Inclusion, Transparency, College Accessibility, and Community. Our goal is to evaluate the current ways we have and continually improve them to create new ways to reach out to students and involve them in our decision-making process; we want everyone on campus to feel welcome and represented. We plan to be more transparent with students regarding our decisions and finances as well as provide more resources to all our students. Additionally, we want to provide resources for underrepresented groups on campus who need more resources to be successful. With all of these initiatives, we want to build a supportive community on campus where everyone works together to serve the students. Our primary focus this year is to collaborate with the WSU Tri-Cities administration to build a recreation facility on campus, open a diversity center, and continue exploring the options of affordable healthcare for students.
