J. Campus Governance

The Articles of Local Campus Government for the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, were adopted by the Board of Trustees as Board Policy 810.1, and appear in the Faculty Handbook. All campus faculty committees except the tenure committee have student representatives, whose nominations are made through the Associated Student Government. The Associated Student Government (ASG) provides important services to the University community and is an integral part of governance on the campus. ASG has four executive officers selected in campus-wide elections and 51 senators elected on a college model basis. Operation of the Associated Student Government is guided by the ASG Constitution and the ASG Code, all of which are published in the Code Book. Reference copies of the Code Book are available for examination by students or other interested parties on the ASG website. ASG addresses student concerns and involvement in the University community through responsible activism and specific initiatives. ASG Senate has responsibility for various legislative functions including funding recommendations, and initiates campus-wide legislation based on student concerns. Students who want to be involved in ASG activities may apply at the ASG office in ARKU A669 or call 575-5205. Other student organizations that represent living groups and are an integral part of student government are the Residents Interhall Congress (RIC), the Interfraternity Council (IFC), the Pan-Hellenic Council, and the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC).
