Student Government and Organizations

Student Leadership and Involvement

For those interested in getting involved, making meaningful connections, and learning about leadership, the Student Leadership, Involvement and Changemaking area (SLIC) is the place for you. Located on the 3rd floor of the Student Life Pavilion, SLIC is home to the areas of student activities, leadership development, student organizations, Welcome Week, Fraternity and Sorority Life and the Changemaker Hub. Through the SLIC, students can get connected to over 150 Student Organizations, Associated Students, Torero Program Board and Fraternity and Sorority Life. The SLIC also provides resources for event planning and leadership trainings on how to better lead a group and affect change. The Creative Zone and our Involvement Consultants can help with marketing, team building, event planning support and involvement opportunities. Finally, all faculty/staff/administrator advisors use the SLIC's Advisor Resources to help enhance and enrich the student leader experience.

Student Government

All undergraduate students belong to the Associated Students of USD, a self-governing student group. Officers of the Associated Students (AS) and members of its governing board are elected or appointed by the students. The AS Leadership Team serves the University of San Diego undergraduates as official representatives, who promote opportunities for growth and expression, address student issues, and enrich a diverse, inclusive, and engaged community. The Leadership Team is comprised of a president, vice president, speaker, directors and coordinators. The Student Senate is composed of a Speaker, Parliamentarian, Speaker Pro-Tem and Senators (Academic, Residential and Commuter). Associated Students receives funding from the Student Activity Fee and financially supports campus programming and campus services, facilitates communication between student organizations and serves as the official student voice to administration.

Torero Program Board

The Torero Program Board (TPB) is charged with coordinating all of the events and programs sponsored by the AS. They coordinate a variety of programs including concerts, class programming, off-campus events, school spirit, special events, multicultural and after-dark. The Torero Program Board is lead by the TPB Chair.
