What is ASG?
The Associated Student Government, or ASG, at Oxnard College offers students opportunities to share in college governance, to interact with professionals, to participate in social and cultural activities, and to create and administer programs of their own, teaching self-reliance, ethical leadership skills, and responsible action.

The Associated Student Government of Oxnard College is committed to being equity-minded leaders, amplifying the diverse student voice and cultivating a college community.

- College Planning Council
- Budget Committee
- Campus Use, Development, and Safety Committee
- Curriculum Committee
- Professional Development Committee

What is the Relationship Between ASG and Campus Clubs?
