ASUSF Senate Legislation

ASUSF Senate creates legislation to address the needs of students at USF.

Our resolutions are aimed either at issues that affect students or at improving our own structure. Passed resolutions by the ASUSF Senate will be frequently updated throughout the school year. To find out more about how resolutions work and what effects they have, join us at our public meetings or contact us at senate@usfca.edu.
