The Associated Students of the University of the Pacific, (ASuop) is the governing student body that is responsible for advocating and working on behalf of student concerns. To benefit students, ASuop Government maintains close working relationships with the Division of Student Life and partnerships around the Stockton Community. ASuop Government has two branches: an Executive and a Legislative. These two branches work together to ensure that the student voice is heard in University governance, supply essential and valuable service to the ASuop members, and provide the opportunity to be involved in student life at Pacific.
The executive branch is made up of the President, Vice President, Treasurer, and four Commissioners, which form the cabinet. The cabinet is responsible for the day to day operations of ASuop and its services.
The Senate forms the overall policy and goals of ASuop, approves the annual budget, and serves as a conduit for information to flow from the students to the University Administration. There are currently twelve senate seats, one for each school on the Stockton campus, and four Senators-at-large which represent nonacademic constituency groups.
There are many different ways to get involved in ASuop and student life in general. We have many opportunities in Government, Commissions or committees that need students, or just another set of hands on a big project. Let us know that you are interested. Drop by the ASuop office in the McCaffrey Center or give us a call at (209) 946-2233.
