Welcome (back), Dawgs!

Welcome Dawgs – hope you had an enjoyable summer! We are the Associated Students of UW Tacoma (ASUWT), your student government.  As your Executive Board and Senate, we have been working diligently over the summer to represent your student voice. We are a dynamic team with a diverse array of responsibilities, constantly diving into new initiatives in an effort to bring our dreams for UWT to life.

In Autumn Quarter, we are tackling a variety of projects and we hope that you would join us. We are organizing our annual Rock the Vote, an event where students can 1) meet elected officials and candidates to learn about issues that directly affect our community, and 2) PARTYYYY at an awesome concert!!!! We are also in the process of appointing students to a diverse range of committees and confirming Senators for Business and Undeclared seats. In addition, we will be at New Student Orientation (9/21-25), Convocation (10/2), Hot Dawgs with the Top Dawgs (10/7), and Involvement Fair (10/30).

Sophie Nop, our ASUWT President, is actively working on tri-campus initiatives that affect UW Tacoma, such as a Diversity Task Force, the UW presidential search, the Student Code of Conduct, and attending UW Regents board meetings and Washington Student Association assemblies.

We look forward to an exciting year serving our UWT community with gumption. (Apologies for our weird vocabulary.)

A New Student Government…

IMG_8810After turning 25 this year, UW Tacoma is in the midst of an exciting time. As the university grows, so has its leadership. In the 2015-16 year, ASUWT will be operating under a newly-ratified Constitution and with a completely new team. All the Directors and Senators are new to ASUWT and we also have a new advisor. Administrative leadership at our university has also changed, with a fresh Chancellor and efforts underway to find a new UW President to preside over all three UW campuses.

We are appreciative of those who have paved the way before us by creating opportunities and being deliberate about upholding the vision and mission of UW Tacoma. With the next quarter century in mind, we look forward to supporting students, staff, faculty, administration, and the greater Tacoma community by positively contributing to UW Tacoma’s history.
