Board of Directors

ASI is governed by a Board of Directors also known as the "BoD". The BoD consists of a variety of students including 3 elected executive officers and student directors representing each of the colleges as well as students-at-large, graduates, international and students residing in the on-campus residence halls. Other members of the board include representatives on behalf of the President and Faculty as well as the Executive Director and the ASI advisor. 

Meetings are held every Tuesday at noon in SMSU Room 219, and are not held during final exam week or during quarter breaks. Meeting locations are subject to change  due to the limited availability of meeting space. Please check with the ASI office at (909) 537-5932.
