What is ASDU?

ASDU stands for Associated Students of Dominican University and serves as the primary governing body that plans and provides campus activities, distributes activity funds, initiates changes in policy, and represents the Dominican student body to the University’s administration and the broader community. This group of elected student representatives functions both as the student activities association and the student government board. The members of the ASDU Senate are composed of representatives from all four class levels of regular day program students. All ASDU meetings are open to the public.


Mission Statement of ASDU

The Associated Students of Dominican University represents the interests of the student body to the Dominican community as well as the greater Marin community. ASDU offers opportunities to develop communally and as leaders, scholars, and individuals.

Events sponsored or co-sponsored by ASDU

ASDU is committed to organizing events, socials, and volunteer activities for the entire student body. Opportunities exist for involvement in many activities both on- and off-campus. Non-ASDU members are invited to join these committees in an effort to encourage participation between the student body and the student government. Involvement includes biweekly meetings. For more information about these committees, contact your ASDU representative.

In addition, students who perceive a need for a new and different club or organization on campus are invited to discuss their ideas with ASDU and the Director of Student Activities and Leadership. ASDU is committed to helping student clubs and organizations through funding support and publicity.
