Who We Are


We the leaders of the Associated Students of Washington State University represent the diverse student population of Washington State University. ASWSUTC seeks to promote the well being of students by respecting the integrity, dignity, and worth of individuals, with the acknowledgment of differences. The association provides services and opportunities to the student body while maintaining a professional environment. Allegiance to these ideas requires those in positions of leadership within ASWSUTC to refrain from and to discourage behaviors, which threaten the freedom and respect every individual deserves.


The Associated Students of WSU Tri-Cities Executives are the President and Vice President. They are elected in the General Election during the spring semester and serve from commencement to commencement of the following year. They are responsible for supervising the Directors, Senators, and Staff, and they represent the organization to the university administration, Washington Student Association, and the WSU Student Government Council. Their offices are located in the Student Union Building. Come stop by and say hello!
