ASI Elections


ASI Elections Run for ASI Student Government

Elections Overview


What is Student Government?

ASI Student Government consists of student leaders either elected by the student body or appointed by the ASI President to serve the student body and assume specific responsibilities. As a whole, Student Government aims to serve the students of Cal Poly Pomona (CPP), from lobbying on their behalf to advocating for campus services and representing the students.

Getting involved and serving as a Student Government leader leads to excellent business experience, building your college involvement and boosting your career resume.

What are elections for?

The purpose of the election is to elect student leaders composed of the ASI President, Vice President and Senators that sit on the ASI Senate in Student Government. Student Government Elections occur annually in spring semester online. The election outcome determines who will sit on the ASI Senate, which also serves as the ASI Board of Directors. This voting body consists of a President, a Vice President, a Senator to represent each of the eight colleges (College of Agriculture, College of Business, Collins College of Hospitality Management, College of Education and Integrative Studies, College of Engineering, College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences, College of Environmental Design and College of Science) and a Senator to represent each of the four at-large councils (Student Interest Council, Greek Council, InterHall Council and Multicultural Council).

Who is eligible to run for Student Government?

Students are eligible to run for Student Government if they meet the CSU system-wide requirements. These requirements include having a 2.0 GPA or higher, having attended at least two semesters at CPP, having taken and received credit for at least nine units, being in good standing with the Office of Judicial Affairs and having not exceeded the unit load maximum.

How do I run in the Election?

The first step to joining in on the election is to participate in an ASI Elections Informational Session which will take place around early spring semester. There, you will get a brief overview of the Student Government structure, as well as the election process. You are not required to run after this meeting since it is simply informational. However, in order to run for office, you MUST come to at least one meeting. Check out the times, dates, and locations here.

Following the info session, you must complete the Election Candidate Application and turn it in to the ASI Student Government Office located in the Bronco Student Center (BSC, Bldg. 35) across from Round Table Pizza.
