Associated Student Government

Proposed Constitution & Bylaws Changes 

The Student Council has revised the Associated Student Government (ASG) governing documents to leverage engagement, streamline offerings and serve as the gateway to campus involvement and student access. To continue to operate as a student association, we had to take a comprehensive look at our processes, outcomes and programs to ensure we are maximizing our impact on student success and access, campus life and shared governance. Electronic copies of both the proposed and current Constitution & Bylaws can be accessed here:

Received by Student Council on April 8, 2014 and updated on Tuesday, April 29.

The Associated Student Government is made up entirely of students committed to serving other students. Our 19-member student staff represents students from a variety of technical programs and social demographics. The three branches of Student Government include:

Student Council

These student leaders make decisions on behalf of all students concerning school policy, club sanctioning, expenditure of student fees, and ASG marketing materials.





Campus Activities Board

These student leaders provide the student body with social and recreational opportunities that enhance student life.




Peer Mentors

These student leaders provide programming and tools to increase retention and academic success on a peer to peer level.





Looking to Get Involved with ASG?

Whether it's joining or starting a club, serving on a campus committee, or volunteering for ASG events, there are many opportunities for students to get involved with ASG. If you are looking for short-term ways to get involved please contact the ASG President at or 253-589-5685.

Our ASG selection process for official Student Government positions begins every spring quarter. A hiring committee (predominately made of students, along with advisors from the Office of Student Programs) will review applications, conduct interviews, and hire students into the various 19 position titles based on strengths and ability to work as a team. This process, as opposed to an elections-based system, ensures that the best-qualified candidates are selected and are able to do the work required to represent the thousands of CPTC students.

Leadership positions are an 11-month commitment lasting from August until June. Not only is your service to students great for your resume and a fantastic way to develop skills, but it is also pays $10.43/hour for 12-19 hours per week. For more information on the ASG selection process, contact the ASG Vice President of Operations at or 253-589-6050.
