About ASUO

Amplify Your Voice

The Associated Students of the University of Oregon (“ASUO”) is the recognized student government at the University of Oregon. It is run by students, for students.

ASUO’s elected Officials, volunteers, and members advocate on behalf of students at the campus, city, state, and federal level. Our officials are engaged in the creation of legislative policy, the promotion and management of university-wide campaigns, and the coordination of the student organization recognition process. The ASUO also recommends and allocates the student incidental fee.

The Incidental Fee

Every term students pay their tuition and fees. In those student fees, also called Incidental Fees or the “I-Fee,” student pay for a variety of services on campus that support student groups, services and facilities. Many students assume that the services are “free” because they are a student. This is because they can be “hidden” in the fees. Understanding that students pay for these services is one of the reasons why committee and senate members are so important: they allocate funding from students’ money for a variety of purposes for our campus community. Here are some services that students PAY for in their fees every term:

  • LTD: The ability to ride any LTD bus without fare, including the EmX!
  • SRC: Gym membership and access to the Student Recreation Center!
  • EMU: The cost of facility operations and renovation for our Student Union, including funding for student groups housed in the EMU, such as the Women's Center and the Student Activities Resource Center.
  • UO Athletics: Ticket costs for the chance to see The Ducks play in every sport on campus!

Purpose of this Guide

The ASUO Elections Board is very proud to continue the interactive work inspired in 2015 by several ambitious and talented UO students from ASUO and the School of Journalism and Communication (SOJC). In that year, the first online ASUO Elections voter guide was borne.

We promote the original vision for this guide, as a resource where students can get to know the candidates in order to make an informed choice about the students who will lead the campus going forward. Decisions made by elected officials has a direct impact on every UO student. Furthermore, ASUO is entrusted with the allocation of the $16+ million incidental fee; funds that support the social, cultural, educational and physical development of all student members. The original goal, which we have upheld, was a simple, clean and concise voter guide that allows every candidate a platform on which to share their vision and inspire the support of voters.

In the interest of inspired learning, the Elections Board welcomes any feedback and suggestions that you may have regarding this guide. Feel free to send us an email, or talk to us in person. Thank you for taking the time to participate in the democratic process here on our campus! Best Wishes, and Go Ducks!

In Leadership,

The ASUO Elections Board – asuoelectionsboard@uoregon.edu
