Who We Are
Read the ASCC Constitution here
Your student government, Associated Students of Cuesta College (ASCC), is here to promote the general welfare of Cuesta College students; to guarantee equality of opportunity among students; to offer an experience in the practice of the American democratic government; and to encourage student participation in, planning for, and involvement in a comprehensive program of student activities. It offers opportunities to participate in social and cultural activities, to share in governance activities, to interact with professionals, and to create and administer their own organizations and programs. Members of ASCC are all Cuesta College students, not employees of the school.
Section 111 of the "Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2005" established a statutory requirement for implementation of an educational program pertaining to the United States Constitution, designated by statute as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day ("Constitution Day"). An educational institution which receives Federal Funds for a fiscal year shall hold an educational program on the United States Constitution on or about September 17 of such year for the students served by the educational institution.
Each year ASCC plans event(s) that are meaningful and related to this statutory requirement. These events range from formal programs, films, and passing out a constitutional booklet, to engaging in small and large group conversations. This year ASCC along with the support of the Student Life and Leadership Program will hold a celebration on September 20, 2016 at the North County Campus and San Luis Obispo Campus. This is just one example of the activities hosted by ASCC throughout the year. Please check the Student Life and Leadership Event Calender for current listing of events.
