Student Government 

The Associated Students, Inc. (A.S.I.) is an incorporated non-profit student run auxiliary in which all students hold membership. A.S.I. is managed by a board of directors composed of elected student officers who are the officially recognized voice of the students. This body formulates policy and handles the business affairs of the student body.

 The purpose of A.S.I. is to provide opportunities for student involvement in campus governance and policy development. A.S.I. facilitates student leadership and participation in state and local politics, and serves as an official venue for the expression of student opinion. A.S.I. contributes to the educational, social, and cultural life of the university through programs and activities, featuring noted artists, films, and guest speakers. For more information go to

Advocacy Network Efforts

All Californians have a stake in maintaining a strong and accessible California State University system, in particular because 1 in every 10 employees of California’s workforce is a CSU graduate working in the agriculture, business, education, engineering, health care, media and entertainment field. 

Cal State L.A. has formed the CSULA Alumni Advocacy Committee to help promote public support for the CSU and CSULA.

The CSULA Alumni Advocacy Committee is comprised of alumni and leaders from the CSULA Community as well as current and former elected officials who have enthusiastically supported Cal State L.A. in the past. These volunteers are uniquely qualified as advocates because of their long-time association with Cal State L.A. and familiarity with campus issues.

Members of these groups receive periodic special newsletters concerning statewide bond measures and other issues on which they might become advocates. They also participate in campus visits by local elected officials and visit elected officials in their district offices. For information please call Maria Ubago, Acting Assistant Director, Alumni Relations at (323) 343-2586.

The CSULA Alumni Association

The CSULA Alumni Association was formed in 1954 to provide official representation of alumni in matters that affect the general welfare of the University. The Association serves as a vital link between the University and its alumni. The mission of the Association is:

To advance the welfare of CSULA by providing leadership and service that strengthens the connections among students, alumni and friends and enhances the value of their affiliation with the University

The CSULA Alumni Association is a nonprofit dues-paying membership organization open to alumni and friends of California State University, Los Angeles. To join the Alumni Association or to request information on getting involved please visit our website at or call us at (323) 343-ALUM.
