Associated Students Inc. is a nonprofit, auxiliary corporation and the recognized student government at Cal State Fullerton. ASI provides student engagement and development opportunities through leadership, volunteer and employment experiences. ASI provides campus community members with important social, cultural and recreational opportunities, as well as a wide range of programs and services. Every part-time or full-time student is a member of ASI through fees paid each semester. These fees are administered by ASI through the student-elected board of directors and executive staff, and provide for student governance, shared governance of the university, programming of student activities, funding of campus organizations and athletics, and the operation of the Titan Student Union, Student Recreation Center, Children’s Center, and CSUF Irvine Center’s Fitness Center and Lounge. 

Executive Officers

The ASI executive officers comprise an elected president and vice president, an appointed chief campus relations officer, chief communications officer and chief governmental officer. The ASI executive officers represent students’ needs and interests to the CSUF administration, faculty, staff and campus community. They manage the day-to-day proceedings of student government and programs and initiate projects that benefit students. The executive officers report progress on strategic initiatives to the board of directors and advocate for students at all levels within the university and in external public forums.

Board of Directors

The ASI board of directors comprises two voting representatives from each of the eight academic colleges on campus, as well as other officers and representatives. The board is charged with setting policy for ASI, approving all funding allocations to programs and services, and advocating student interests on committees and boards. The board of directors meets every Tuesday at 1:15 p.m. in the Titan Student Union Board Room. These meetings are open to the public and all students are encouraged to attend.

Titan Student Centers Governing Board

The Titan Student Centers (i.e., Titan Student Union, Student Recreation Center and satellite facilities) are governed by a student-majority board, which develops policies on issues ranging from operating hours to services offered. The purpose of the TSC board of trustees is to establish policies that will assure that the Titan Student Centers will be a unifying force between students, faculty and staff; a campus center for social, cultural and intellectual activities and services; a place to provide further opportunities to broaden and strengthen interpersonal relationships and self-enhancement within a large urban university; and to provide experience in self-government and civic responsibility. The TSC board of trustees meets every other Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. in the Titan Student Union Board Room. These meetings are open to the public and all students are encouraged to attend.

Involvement

Students don’t have to be elected to an ASI office to take part in leadership. They can get involved in ASI by serving on committees, working on programs, and helping to develop new programs and services. Participation on committees as a student representative or serving as a volunteer provides networking opportunities, rewarding experiences and campus involvement, as well as insight into how the university functions, plans and deals with issues. Information regarding appointed student positions and volunteer opportunities is available in the ASI executive offices located in Titan Student Union 207 or by calling 657-278-3295. Students can also attend ASI Street Team meetings Tuesdays at 7 p.m. or Wednesdays at 4 p.m. in TSU Gabrielino.

Trained preschool teachers and student interns provide a developmental program for children ages 4 months through pre-kindergarten year, that offers experiences in art, science, language, physical development, math, reading and music, with an emphasis on the development of social and problem-solving skills.
