Apply to be an ASUM Senator or Run in the 2022 Election

At a time where so many changes are being made on our campus it's important to have students engaged and involved and there isn't a better way to do that then to become a senator for the Associated Students of the University of Montana (ASUM).

We are looking for students who want to make a difference on campus, get others engaged, and represent others in important conversations on campus and at our state legislature.

See a problem on campus that you want addressed? Want to be a part of an engaged body of students? Have ideas for improvement? Want to be a part of that change? Apply to be a senator!

We are looking for dedicated students who want to serve and represent all students at UM. Here are a few ways senators effect change on our campus:

  • Through being active members on University Committees
  • Creating internal change on our ASUM Committees
  • Represent and listen to students at our weekly Senate Meetings (Wednesday nights)
  • Act as a mentor for UM Administration
  • And so much more!
