Get Involved

The Associated Students of Madison (ASM) is the official student governance body of UW-Madison, representing the needs of over 43,000 students. Students involved with ASM learn to be effective, engaged citizens who advocate for causes and for themselves. Because of ASM’s strong reliance on the energy of many students, you can really make a difference for campus, city, state, and national issues! Visit the links below for further information on current involvement opportunities.

How do I get involved with ASM?

Appointed Positions

ASM appoints students to paid positions on committees which allocate funds and space for student organizations. The ASM Nominations Board is now accepting applications for several appointed positions with the 28th session of ASM.

Leadership Positions

Put your student advocacy skills and passion to use in a paid leadership role with ASM. Leadership positions for the 2021-22 academic year will be selected in late April.

Shared Governance

Wisconsin law defines shared governance as giving students direct power to jointly run the university with administrators, faculty, and staff. Committees allow students to assist in creating influential campus and city policy.

Volunteer on Open Committees

There are many opportunities to advocate for students on ASM's open committees. Volunteers usually attend weekly meetings, contribute to planning strategic campaigns, mobilize other students, and participate in activism activities.
