Student Leadership Opportunities

Student voices are definitely heard at Augustana. Whether it’s arranging concerts or funding clubs, student input shapes our campus. That means you can not only develop your leadership skills as a student organization officer, but also take part in the governance of Augustana itself.

The Augustana Student Association (ASA) is the official student government organization. ASA works with Augustana’s Board of Trustees, administration and faculty on behalf of the student body to tackle issues ranging from institutional accreditation, strategic planning and policy development to buildings and grounds topics. ASA manages a substantial annual budget that supports programming and funding for recognized student clubs.

Additionally, the Union Board of Governors (UBG) organizes programming for the Augustana student body that includes social and cultural activities. It has committees for Films, Dances, Coffeehouses (acoustic nights, Battle of the Bands, etc.), Entertainment (comedians, inflatables, etc.), Culture and Fine Arts (authors, world issues, etc.) and Big Events (concerts with well-known performers).
