Whitworth's student government, known as the Associated Students of Whitworth University (ASWU), welcomes you!
We the Associated Students of Whitworth University commit to attentive representation of our dynamic student body. Collectively and individually, we will provide effective leadership by bringing together the student voice and the broader institution in ways that foster new ideas, affirm holistic diversity, and facilitate change. Our purpose as leaders will be service and accessibility, keeping us accountable to our community, while faithfully upholding the Whitworth mission.
The ASWU's role is twofold:
The ASWU is composed of three executive officers, who coordinate the student government and who lead the student body, several dorm senators 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.
