Associated Students of Willamette University

Senate 15-16

Dear Willamette Bearcats,

Welcome to the ASWU webpage. As your representatives on campus we are dedicated to serving you, and this site reflects that ethic by providing you with a broad range of information about our organization. If you are wondering exactly who we are and what we do, I encourage you to look through our constitution, bylaws, and role descriptions. We also provide you here with several descriptions, documents, and schedules regarding our current work and services offered. There are other bits and pieces of interesting information scattered throughout the various sections, so I encourage you to explore; I’m sure you can find something that interests you.

If you can’t, though, or if you have suggestions for how to improve this page, please contact us and we will gladly address your concerns. This is especially relevant this year because my goals as your ASWU President mainly revolve around increasing transparency and the impact of student voices in decision making processes around campus. We will do all we can to further these goals, but I must also ask you to do your part in helping make Willamette a model of student engagement.

It is with these goals in mind that I also encourage you to look through the list of your student representatives on the various committees around campus, which you can access by clicking here. Consider your fellow Bearcats serving on committees as an extension of ASWU, and use their influence to further your interests by contacting them if you have views or information relevant to their committees.

On behalf of ASWU, I thank you for all the work that you do and for putting the information contained here to good use.

Yours truly,

Shamir Cervantes

ASWU President
