the 2013-2014 associated student government at clover park technical college near tacoma

The Associated Student Government is made up entirely of students committed to serving other students. Our 19-member student staff represents students from a variety of technical programs and social demographics. The three branches of Student Government include:

Student Council

Is an advocate of the student voice and a partner with other governing units. The Student Council oversees the administration of the ASG. Council meetings, which are open to the public, are held on a regular basis while CPTC is in session. 

Campus Activities Board

Promotes and coordinates a well-balanced program of student-initiated activities that enhance health and wellness, cultural, social and recreational needs of the Associated Students outside the classroom aimed at enhancing student life.

Peer Ambassadors

Increase student success, retention and completion by providing students with opportunities to engage with students in meaningful ways that offer support, encouragement and the resources they need to achieve their educational and personal goals.

A hiring committee (predominately made of students, along with advisors from the Office of Student Programs) will review applications, conduct interviews, and hire students into the various 19 position titles based on strengths and ability to work as a team. This process, as opposed to an elections-based system, ensures that the best-qualified candidates are selected and are able to do the work required to represent the thousands of CPTC students.

Leadership positions are an 11-month commitment lasting from August until June. Not only is your service to students great for your resume and a fantastic way to develop skills, but it is also pays $10.43/hour for 12-19 hours per week. For more information on the ASG selection process, contact the ASG Administrative Officer at asg.secretary@cptc.edu or 253-589-5685.
