ASOSU STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Land Recognition

Indigenous Land Recognition

Let it be acknowledged that Oregon State University in Corvallis is located within the traditional homelands of the Marys River or Ampinefu Band of Kalapuya. Following the Willamette Valley Treaty of 1855, Kalapuya people were forcibly removed to reservations in Western Oregon. Today, living descendants of these people are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community of Oregon and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians. Indigenous people are valued, contributing members of the Oregon State community and represent multiple sovereign tribes among students, faculty, staff and alumni.

Who We Are

ASOSU Student Government is the official institution of student democracy at Oregon State University. We manage the allocation of incidental fees to student-facing services. We provide a voice to students and advocate on the issues that they care about. We hold stake in the deliberation and enactment of campus-wide policy, bringing the interests of the student body to the table.

Shared Governance

ASOSU officially cooporates with OSU administration and faculty in creating and changing university policies. Under the Shared Governance Agreement, we provide student representation in the Board of Trustees, Faculty Senate, the OSU President's cabinet, and other campus committees, where our members advocate on behalf of student interests.

student fees

ASOSU is responsible for the management of $30 million (FY23) in incidental fees paid by OSU students. The annual fee setting cycle determines the fee charged in the next year and the amount of funding and resources for student services such as clubs, cultural centers, basic needs programs, and facilities every year.

lobbying

ASOSU members connect regularly with government officials at the local, state and federal level. We advocate for larger-scale policies that benefit OSU students and higher education more broadly.
