History

 

The Associated Students of Madison (ASM) today is composed of roughly 50 elected or appointed students, 50 student employees, 12 professional staff members, hundreds of student campaign volunteers, and 200 student appointees on committees that hold legal rights to recommend university policies, budgets, and candidates for UW employment. ASM allocates approximately $43 million in segregated university fees each year and is responsible for management of the Student Activity Center, distribution of the student bus pass, and the day to day operations of StudentPrint. ASM is not a Registered Student Organization. The roles of ASM can be divided into three categories: direct action, governance, and service.

Below is a link to a chronological history of how students have participated in UW-Madison governance and student fee allocation over time, how ASM came into existence in its current form as a grassroots driven organization, and recent victories that ASM has accomplished.
