About ASI

Experience life outside of the classroom.

Connecting students to their ultimate college experience. Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) is an inclusive, empowering, student-driven organization committed to providing programs, services, and facilities that enhance and develop the student learning experience.

Cal Poly students are stakeholders in ASI and have access to leadership positions through Student Government and on-campus employment. All of these opportunities are designed to complement Cal Poly’s educational mission, support a balanced education, and give students ownership and pride in their college experience.

Our Values

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We recognize how historical racism and systems of oppression exist and work to reinforce inequity within our society and on our campus.  At ASI, we will work to support and invest in the safety of members of marginalized communities so that they feel a sense of belonging at Cal Poly, are able to fully engage in campus life through ASI programs and services and are able to achieve their academic and professional goals.  We commit to social justice through continuous education, advocacy, and by challenging and responding to racism, discrimination, and other harmful acts.


At ASI, status quo is a momentary resting place. We work collaboratively to set the standard for student-run organizations and promote excellence in every program and facility we manage. We work proactively to uphold our commitment of developing a dynamic, progressive organization that is constantly striving to improve.

Our creative power comes from our playful spirit just as much as our diligent work. While we take our mission seriously, our methods are driven by our team’s enthusiasm and unique approach which is demonstrated through the originality that ASI programming offers.

Every day is an opportunity to learn something new. ASI encourages continuous learning and curiosity among our employees, leaders, and program participants through experiences, education, training, and development.

The commitment to act ethically and with personal integrity is fundamental to all interactions at ASI. We emphasize quality decision-making that keeps the best interest of Cal Poly students in mind.

The diverse relationships and networks created while at Cal Poly benefit students both personally and professionally well beyond their college experience. To support the development of relationships, ASI provides programs and services that promote mutually respectful bonds and connections with the Cal Poly and San Luis Obispo communities. We do not tolerate acts of discrimination, harassment, profiling, or other conduct causing harm.
