Project Description

What is the General Assembly?

The General Assembly is the legislative body of the Associated Students of Michigan State University. The Assembly is comprised of college-elected representatives from the degree-granting colleges, as well as representatives from the Council of Racial and Ethnic Students (CORES), Council of Progressive Students (COPS), and major governing organizations (Residence Hall Association, Fraternity and Sorority Life Councils, etc.)

The Assembly introduces, debates, and votes on legislative action to take a stance on behalf of the collective undergraduate student body. Legislative action from the Assembly on behalf of the undergraduate student body is then carried forward in advocacy to University officials, community leaders, as well as representatives at the State Capitol and Federal level of government. The Assembly also maintains fiduciary responsibility for the funds of the organization, authorizing the annual ASMSU budget in the spring, and any other expenditures that are not already set forward in the budget for the organization.

General Assembly meetings are open to all members of the public, where all undergraduate students are encouraged to participate, and can be found on the calendar below. Elections to join the General Assembly occur each spring semester in the month of April. Should there be an opening to fill a vacancy, an announcement for appointments will be made known on the home page of the ASMSU website.

If you have questions about the General Assembly, please contact the Vice President for Internal Administration at vpia@asmsu.msu.edu.
