Associated Students of the University of Missouri (ASUM)

The student voice in government

The purpose of ASUM is to:

  • Educate students about the political process
  • Increase political awareness, concern and participation among students.
  • Channel student energy and interest in the governmental process.

Opportunities exist for students interested in governmental relations to get involved with ASUM.  Students can serve as ASUM Ambassadors and assist with voter registration, letter writing, campaigns, and candidate forms.  ASUM Board members work with students on the other three University of Missouri campuses to promote UM System issues.  Visit the ASUM Office located on the 2nd floor of the MU Student Center.
