Our Mission for Students
~ Uniting Campuses. Serving Students. ~
Founded and funded by students, The University of North Carolina Association of Student Governments
champions the concerns of students and ensures affordability and accessibility to quality education today and tomorrow.
The UNC Association of Student Governments is the student organization designated to represent the interests of students in the deliberations of the UNC Board of Governors.
Our purpose is to advocate for the collective best interests of students in serving as a liaison between students and the Governor of North Carolina, the North Carolina General Assembly, and the Office of the President of the University of North Carolina; and collaboratively increase awareness of issues affecting students and the University.
Led by an elected President and Senior Vice President, and assisted by five other executive officers, UNCASG follows a senate model with four delegates representing each of the 17 campuses within the UNC System.
UNCASG's advocacy work follows a committee model with delegates selecting one of three committees: Campus Outreach, Governmental Outreach, or Media Outreach. Two additional committees, Budget and Finance or Internal Affairs oversee the operational activities of the association. The Council of Student Body Presidents serves as the main policy making committee.
