Have you ever thought about joining ASI Student Government? This is your chance! The candidate filing period for the 2019–20 ASI president and ASI Board of Directors is now open through Friday, Feb. 22 at 4 p.m.

As the collective voice of Cal Poly students, Student Government leaders advocate for change, support, and resources to create positive contributions both on and off campus. If elected, leaders will have the opportunity to effect change and create a better Cal Poly for current and future generations of students.

To file for ASI president or the Board of Directors, students must complete a Candidate Packet. The Candidate Packet, including required electronic and PDF forms, is available on the ASI elections website.

The ASI president is expected to be available during summer quarter to fulfill the responsibilities of meeting attendance, in-office work, retreats, and other affiliated job functions.

The board is comprised of representatives from each academic college that serve as the official voice of students and act as the corporate governing board for ASI.
