Students shall be free, individually and collectively, to express their views on issues of institutional policy and on matters of general interest to the student body. The student body shall have clearly defined means to participate in the formulation and application of institutional policy affecting academic and student affairs.
One of Student Government's primary responsibilities is to represent the Student Body. ASUAF does this in several ways. The President and his/her designates serve on various boards and committees throughout UAF. The ASUAF Senate can pass resolutions voicing student concerns and stating the student body's opinion. ASUAF conducts surveys and polls to find out what students are thinking. All of this is in an effort to make sure student's voices are heard and are part of the decision making process.
Our mission is to create fun, unique, memorable experience for UAF students! We believe that some of the best communities are created through sharing experiences, and we want UAF to be a place where all feel that they belong, that they can build memories, and that they can grow. And of course - we want to do this through fun events and programs!
