How does the Mills community ensure that every student’s voice is heard? The Associated Students of Mills College (ASMC), whose membership is open to undergraduate and graduate students alike, plays a big role. The mission of the ASMC is to challenge its members to further their student leadership development and become catalysts for academic and social change.
The ASMC enhances the supportive nature of the Mills community and builds connections between students, faculty, staff, administrators, and trustees. It funds clubs run by undergraduate students, campus-wide events, and student initiatives. Students serve as elected or appointed officers of ASMC and function as the official voice of the student body to the Mills administration.
Elections are held every fall for executive board positions and every spring for senators.
The ASMC Executive Board consists of nine elected and appointed officials who oversee the senate and its committees, hold biweekly meetings, and work closely with the Mills College President and the administration.
There are spots for more than 20 senators on the ASMC, each of whom serve on a senate committee and meet biweekly with the executive board to discuss matters that are important to the Mills community.
Each undergraduate class elects five members to serve on its class council. In addition to organizing class events, each council sends a representative to the senate.
