Associated Students of Whitworth University

ASWU Group Whitworth's student government, known as the Associated Students of Whitworth University (ASWU), welcomes you!

Mission Statement

As the Associated Students of Whitworth University, we commit to being a supportive resource and an honest representation of our diverse student body to the Whitworth community. Each day, we strive to create an inclusive environment, provide a variety of opportunities and practice servant leadership.

The ASWU's role is twofold:

  1. To faithfully represent the student body's perspective on a wide variety of concerns and issues to the administration, faculty, and staff of Whitworth University and to the Spokane community, and
  2. To address the issues that confront the Whitworth student body.

The ASWU is composed of three executive officers, who coordinate the student government and who lead the student body, several dorm presidents and representatives who represent specific living areas and hold voting power, and coordinators who are responsible for programming in specialized areas (i.e., Outdoor Recreation, Intramurals, Special Events). The ASWU Assembly, composed of all the positions mentioned above, gathers every Wednesday at 5 p.m. You are welcome to attend our meetings.

We hope the information you find within these pages is helpful and gives you a sense of the ASWU's mission and how the ASWU defines itself.
