Land Acknowledgement

“As we gather for this meeting physically dispersed and virtually constructed let us take a moment to reflect the meaning of place and doing so recognize the various traditional lands on which we do our business today.”
- Dr. Mark Rose 

Associated Student Government is a body under the University of San Diego. We want to acknowledge that the land we gather is the traditional and unceded territory of the Kumeyaay Nation. We want to pay respect to the citizens of the Kumeyaay Nation, both past and present, and their continuing relationship to their ancestral lands.

Associated Student Government and Torero Program Board Overview

All undergraduate students belong to the Associated Student Government of the University of San Diego, a self-governing group that acts under the authority given by its approved Associated Student Government Constitution. Officers and members of the Associated Student Government Governance branch and the Torero Program Board are either elected or appointed by the undergraduate students. Under their leadership, the students plan and manage student issues, events, and funds. Through participation in committees, students help shape important University decisions. 

Associated Student Government Branches

The Associated Student Government has two main branches: governance and programming. 

The Associated Student Government Governance branch, more commonly known as ASG, serves as the student government. The ASG Leadership Team is comprised of the Executive Board, directors, and chairs. The ASG Team works on solving student issues, financially supports several campus services, facilitates communication between student organizations, and serves as the official student voice to the administration. As stated in the ASG Constitution, the Student Senate, which includes the academic, residential and commuter senators, are not members of the ASG Leadership Team, but are crucial to the success of the ASG Governance branch.

The Torero Program Board (TPB) is the programming branch. The group plans and coordinates programs for the USD community in order to meet the social, educational, recreational, and cultural needs of the undergraduate student body.
