|ASWNMU: The Students' Government|
In conjunction with the WNMU administration, student government is involved in the development of campus policies and programs. Student government organizations enable students to discuss and act upon matters of student concern. These organizations include: the Associated Students, the Executive Council, the Student Supreme Court, and the Student Senate. In addition, students are represented on standing faculty committees that include: Athletics, Cultural Events, Curriculum and Instruction, Evaluation, Instructional Resource, Teacher Education, Graduate Council, and other committees.
Each student who registers for one hour or more and pays his/her activity fee automatically becomes a member of the Associated Students. The Associated Students operate under a written constitution. Certain property and equipment used by the students are owned in the name of the Associated Students. Election of the general student officers and campus-wide student elections are conducted under the name of the Associated Students.
The legislative powers of the Associated Students are vested in the Student Senate. The Senate shall review all budgets prepared by the Executive Council before they are adopted, shall approve or disapprove all major appointments of the student body president, shall be empowered to conduct business deemed necessary to the student interest, and shall have the power to override a student body presidential veto. The Associated Students operate a judicial system consisting of a Student Supreme Court and an Student Attorney General.
