How ASGA Can Help You

Improving Student Governments

You're not a "Super SG" yet—and few Student Governments across the nation can truly be called "great." But your SG is far better than most, and you're growing and improving. Can ASGA help you?

If you're already working to improve, ASGA can provide you with the knowledge, tools, and research that will accelerate your progress to the next level.
ASGA can help your "Improving SG" by:

1. Analyzing Infrastructure. Reviewing and analyzing your structure and core documents such as your constitution, bylaws, and election code will ensure that you're maximizing your effectiveness and help you close any loopholes.

2. Enhancing Voter Turnout. You'll achieve this through creative marketing strategies, use of technology, and new paradigms of when, where, and how to run your elections.

3. Increasing Recruiting and Retention. ASGA can help you devise plans to bring aboard new members from incoming and current students. We'll also show you how to keep your current officers and members involved and interested in SG business, including techniques for making meetings more efficient and tips on using parliamentary procedure to your advantage.

4. Improving Your Image. Boost awareness and opinions of SG across campus through a strategic outreach plan including public appearances, advertising, and marketing.

5. Developing New Services. Create new "signature program" services that address your student body's needs and desires and raise awareness of SG in the process. ASGA's SG Database provides examples of tried-and-true programs that you can bring to your own campus.
  6. Ensuring Smooth Transitions. Improve your transition materials and retreats so that your successors step into office fully knowledgeable and competent to carry on where you left off, making the change seamless.

7. Comparing Your SG With Others Nationwide. We'll help you compare and contrast your current levels of effectiveness and efficiency with SGs at similar institutions to find areas of improvement.

8. Enhancing Administrator Relations. Improve your relationships with administrators, faculty, and staff by analyzing how "friendly" they are to the concept of student governance on your campus.

9. Improving Media Relations. Improve relations with your campus media, create strategies for generating positive and accurate coverage, and develop a plan for how (and if) to respond to negative attacks.

10. Conducting Research for You. ASGA will conduct in-depth research on specific projects so that your officers and members don't have to waste countless hours searching Web sites, leaving voice mail messages, and writing e-mails to other SGs.

American Student Government Association  

The American Student Government Association will provide all Student Government leaders and advisors nationwide with networking, research, and information resources and will teach them how to become more effective, ethical, and influential leaders on their campuses. ASGA also will promote the advancement of SGs, conduct research as the nation’s only “SG Think Tank,” and advocate the importance of having a vibrant, autonomous Student Government organization at every institution in America.
