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.
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.
Do you like serving as a voice for others? Are you good at public speaking and organizing events? Have you thought about running for a position on ASDU?
We are holding ASDU Elections this April but ASDU Candidacy Applications are due March 7th! We are looking for candidates to fill all positions and we hope you are one of them! Please take a look at the timeline below for important dates and information regarding the elections.
What is a slate?
Something new being introduced this year is the ability for candidates to run on slates with one another. This will allow several students to run on the same ticket or slate with the same slogan and campaign statement. You can campaign together and encourage people to vote for your entire slate. Each person will still run for a different position, but it will give you all the opportunity to support one another. If you do not want to run on a slate, you can still run independently. Voting will still be up to the individual and students will not be obligated to vote for every single member of your slate.
Requirements to run for ASDU office
Serving on student government is a rewarding experience - but also one that requires a significant commitment of time and energy.
