Get involved, join a committee.

Universitywide Committees

Cal Poly students have the unique opportunity to be involved in the campus decision-making process. Throughout the academic year, students are appointed to committees and task forces that decide the direction of the University. Students interested in serving on a campuswide committee should contact the ASI Student Government Office, University Union, Room 202, 756-1291.

Academic Senate Committees

The Academic Senate is the faculty governing body of the University, representing approximately 1,000 faculty members. The Academic Senate is constituted to formulate and evaluate policy and procedures on academic, fiscal and personnel matters. The work of the Senate is accomplished through its several committees (comprised of approximately 150 faculty, members of administration, and students).

Standing Committees

The ASI Standing Committees provide recommendations for action to the Board of Directors. ASI Student Government members may sit on one or more ASI Standing Committees throughout the year. ASI Standing Committees consist of members from the Board of Directors, Executive Cabinet, and University Union Advisory Board. All Standing Committee meetings are open to Cal Poly students.

Other Committees

In the light of shared governance, students serve on various other campuswide committees.
