Structure and Function of ASLCCSG

Thank you for your interest in Student Government. Every student who is currently enrolled in one or more credit classes on the main campus and has paid the mandatory student body fee at LCC is a member of the Associated Students of Lane Community College (ASLCC). This pamphlet outlines the structure and policies of the ASLCC Student Government.

Twenty representatives comprise the Student Government. The Executive cabinet consists of: President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Campus Events and Multicultural Program Coordinator. The Staff consists of: Administrative Assistant, Communications Director, Student Resource Center/Food Services Director, Director of State Affairs and Book Consignment Director. The remaining ten (10) positions are Senators-at-Large.

The ASLCC is governed by several documents. The ASLCC Constitution outlines the basic form of Student Government and its policies and may be changed only by a vote of the student body. The ASLCC By-Laws provide more specific information: Job descriptions for student representatives, election rules, and other guidelines for Senate business and policies and can we changed at an ASLCC weekly meeting. In addition to the Constitution and By-Laws, the Student Government is also required to comply with all Lane Community College policies and procedures.

The ASLCC serves as the voice of the students on campus and provides programs and services based on student needs and requests. The ASLCC budget is based on a portion of the Mandatory ASLCC Student Activity fee. Other organizations that receive a portion of the fee are Denali, Pow Wow, International Student Program, Gender Equity Center and Legal Services. Childcare Co-op, Student Health Services, OSPIRG, Oregon Student Association (OSA), TORCH, the Athletic Department, Student Productions and the Longhouse building fee. The ASLCC Senate may also provide limited funding for clubs, organizations, programs, and departments that request financial assistance. Groups interested in requesting funds from ASLCC should log on to Orgsync Student Orgs icon on the upper right corner of your MyLane page. Funds requests forms can be found "Forms" in the ASLCC All Student portal. No requests are granted without completing a form on Orgsync and having a representative from the organization requesting the funds present at the senate meeting where the request is being considered.
