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 seek to represent, empower and serve the student body. We strive to create a more equitable Whitworth by providing a platform for all voices to be heard. We will organize innovative programming and support student-led initiatives to catalyze meaningful relationships for students to thrive locally and globally.

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 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.
