Associated Student Government (ASG)

       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.

What is our Mission? 

The ASG's mission is to:

  • Inform students of their rights and responsibilities.
  • Motivate students to participate in the policy-making that affects their education (thereby improving the quality of their educational experience).
  • Involve students in extracurricular activities.
  • Maintain a high standard of student life by promoting and administering programs that enrich the academic, cultural, and social life at Oxnard College

What are the Benefits? 


While serving in ASG, you'll learn how to:

  • Represent and advocate for students.
  • Problem-solve and face tough decisions.
  • Promote teamwork.
  • Get event programming experience.
  • Sell your ideas and overcome resistance.
  • Recognize the importance of attitude and responsibility.
  • Teach and coach others.

Your participation in ASG can prove to be one of the most valuable and meaningful experiences of your college career. You will gain experience in planning events and develop organizing, marketing, and publicizing skills while gaining an awareness of various college programs and services. In addition, being part of the decision-making process of the college can help you develop your personal and leadership skills. You are given the opportunity to work with campus leaders and administrators. Your involvement can also be included on your resume and scholarship applications!

How Do I Get Involved?

What Is Shared Governance? 

In the spring of 1997, the Student Shared Governance Policy was passed by the Ventura County Community College District. This policy recognizes and promotes student participation and decisions that have a significant effect on students. Putting this into action means students, appointed through ASG, can have a voice in the decision-making process. Below is a sampling of committees on which you can serve:


  • Campus Use, Development, and Safety
  • Curriculum
  • Planning and Budgeting Council
  • Professional Development
  • Program Effectiveness and Planning
  • Distance Education
  • Student Success
  • Transitional Studies


  • District Council of Student Learning
  • Student Representative to the Governing Board

What is the Relationship Between ASG and Campus Clubs? 

ASG plays a key role in assisting clubs in their organization and development by providing forms and information. ASG approves chartered clubs, and will assist the clubs in the creation of their constitution and by-laws.
