A.S. Committees

Associated Students committees are the driving force behind impactful policies and initiatives within student government. Each committee works in conjunction with the Board of Directors and are open to all SJSU students. Whether you're a graduate student, transfer student, commuter student, or freshman, we have a seat waiting for you at the A.S. committee table.

As a committee member (Student at Large), you have the power to create and vote on policies and initiatives that impact the campus, local community, and even theCSU system. This is a fantastic opportunity to get involved with student government before running for a position on the Board of Directors.
