Student Government

An important goal of an undergraduate education at Mills is to develop leadership skills. One of the best ways to learn these skills is to actively participate in student government. Mills College Student GovernmentThe Associated Students of Mills College (ASMC) is run by an executive board of elected and appointed positions. Under the governance of a student-drafted Constitution, the board manages and disburses an annual budget that supports more than 50 student organizations, student publications, campus-wide events, and various student initiatives.

From academic issues to social events to honor code concerns, the ASMC is the voice of the student body to the College administration. During​ ​our​ ​weekly​ ​meetings,​ ​and conversations​ ​with​ ​the​ ​Board​ ​of​ ​Trustees​ ​and​ ​college​ ​officers,​ ​we​ ​carry​ ​the​ ​voices​ ​of​ ​those​ ​we represent​ ​to​ ​ensure​ ​all​ ​decisions​ ​are​ ​made​ ​with​ ​the​ ​input​ ​of​ ​all​ ​students.​ ​The​ ​Finance​ ​committee, for​ ​example​, ​is​ ​made​ ​up​ ​of​ ​several​ ​senators​ ​who​ ​help​ ​work​ ​to​ ​budget​ ​funding​ ​for​ ​clubs​ ​and organizations​ ​run​ ​by​ ​graduate​ ​and​ ​undergraduate​ ​students,​ ​campus-wide​ ​events​ ​and​ ​student initiatives.​ ​Senators​ ​on​ ​the​ ​full​ ​ASMC​ ​board​ ​in​ ​turn​ ​help​ ​vote​ ​on​ ​these​ ​decisions​ ​as​ ​they​ ​pertain to​ ​the​ ​entire​ ​Mills​ ​student​ ​body. 

Undergraduate​ ​and​ ​graduate​ ​ASMC​ ​members​ ​have​ ​had​ ​the​ ​privilege​ ​of​ ​voting​ ​on​ ​a​ ​multitude​ ​of student-led​ ​initiatives​ ​to​ ​better​ ​shape​ ​the​ ​Mills​ ​community.​ ​In​ ​the​ ​past,​ ​this​ ​has​ ​included​ ​such things​ ​as​ ​helping​ ​special​ ​fund​ ​students​ ​to​ ​attend​ ​leadership​ ​conferences​ ​by​ ​covering conference​ ​fees,​ ​initiating​ ​a​ ​Green​ ​for​ ​Green​ ​Fee​ ​to​ ​promote​ ​student-led​ ​sustainability​ ​efforts, and​ ​supporting​ ​cultural​ ​graduations,​ ​such​ ​as​ ​Lavender​ ​Grad.​ ​Our​ ​ASMC​ ​budget​ ​is​ ​comprised​ ​of student​ ​funds​ ​and​ ​you​ ​have​ ​a​ ​say​ ​in​ ​where​ ​and​ ​how​ ​those​ ​funds​ ​should​ ​be​ ​allocated.
