A.S. ELECTIONS

Associated Students of San Jose State University has been a student-owned and operated non-profit organization for over 100 years. We are committed to providing services and activities that enhance the opportunity to meet, recreate and maximize student life. Opportunities to get involved and obtain leadership skills are among our highest priorities.  

The Associated Students Board of Directors represent the student body as their governing council and is made up of 16 members, including the Executive Committee which consists of: The President, Vice President and Controller. They are the voice of SJSU students and advocate on their behalf on campus, statewide and national issues affecting them.
