Seven Commissions comprise the subordinate legislative bodies of the ASUCD Senate. The primary duty of a commission is to advise the ASUCD Senate on matters relevant to their individual specialty. Many commissions also plan events and activities that pertain to their field of expertise and benefit the student body in educational or entertaining ways.

Commissions hire new members at the end of Fall and Spring Quarter each year, though vacancies often occur mid-year as well. Each commission has nine voting members and up to four alternate members.

Committees

The ASUCD Senate several permanent committees. The primary duty of each committee is to delegate responsibilities of the ASUCD Senate into smaller components in order to efficiently handle administrative roles and tasks. Each committee is administrative and has a scope pertaining to its field of expertise. Most of the committees consist of members of the ASUCD Senate, Commissions chairs, and career staff.

Judicial

The judicial branch of ASUCD is headed by the ASUCD Judicial Council. The Judicial Council serves as the adjudicative body of ASUCD. The ASUCD constitution gives the Judicial Council the authority to issue binding rulings on disputes that arise under the Constitution and Bylaws. Including the resolution of all disputes arising under official actions of ASUCD Elected Officials, Appointed Officers, and all subordinate bodies of the ASUCD Senate.

To open a case with the Judicial Council a complaint form must be submitted with the Student Government Administrative Office.

When a complaint form is submitted a case is considered opened by the Judicial Council and the petitioner and respondent will receive a formal notice from the Judicial Council Chair with information regarding their rights and the procedure moving forward. The Judicial Council will consider a case within five academic days of receiving the complaint. When considering a complaint the Judicial Council will vote wether to dismiss the case or schedule a hearing.

Decisions made by the Judicial Council may be appealed to the Judicial Council Oversight Committee. You can read more about the Judicial Oversight Committee in the ASUCD Judicial Oversight Codes. Judicial Council Oversight Committee Appeal Form and Judicial Council Appeal Forms are available online and in SGAO.

For more information regarding the judicial process, consult the ASUCD Judicial Codes or reach out to the Judicial Council directly.
