Associated Students of Whitworth University

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

Mission Statement

We, the Associated Students of Whitworth University, are a collaborative, representative, and transparent resource. Striving to reflect Whitworth's mission, we serve as the integrated, eyes, ears, and voice for the student body and as a bridge between all diverse members of the university.

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.
