Why Should you Work for the ASUW?
As the student government at the University of Washington, a student-first mindset unifies ASUW employees across all 23 entities with their diverse missions and purposes. Students who are paid for their time at ASUW classify as employees. Students who advance the mission of ASUW through participation as interns or committee members are volunteers.
ASUW employees are usually hired on 1-year terms that are the length of the school year. Most employees are hired in Spring quarter for the upcoming school year. All employees attend an ASUW orientation before autumn quarter where they are onboarded into their role. Jobs begin to be posted on Handshake in late Winter Quarter.
Structure of ASUW
The ASUW has an elected Board of Directors that defines the direction of the ASUW. Every entity has a unique mission, and they pursue this mission through advocacy, outreach, programming, and more. Entities often collaborate with RSOs, student organizations, and or other ASUW entities in pursuit of their mission. The staff in entities are hired through an ASUW hiring process.
Some entities, such as the Asian Student Commission or the Black Student Commission, are focused on UW students from marginalized communities.
Other entities are focused on programming, such as the Rainy Dawg Radio or Arts & Entertainment.
