Associated Student Government is offering two opportunities for students to get involved.

  • First-year students are invited to apply for the 2020-21 Freshman Leadership Forum. Applications are open through Wednesday, Sept. 2 at noon on HogSync.
  • All students are invited to apply for the 2020-2021 Associate Member Program. Applications are open on HogSync.

The Freshman Leadership Forum (FLF) is a leadership, service, and personal development program on our campus. FLF is designed to integrate and introduce freshmen to the Associated Student Government (ASG) and various other leadership opportunities on campus. FLF members participate in bi-weekly meetings, student-leader mentorship programs, and government simulations while learning about leadership and service to gain the tools and skills necessary to be future ASG and campus leaders. Through curated programming and intentional networking, FLF members build a community of leaders who will serve all across campus, the Northwest Arkansas area and beyond. Past Members of FLF have gone on to achieve: Student Body Presidency; Sorority/Fraternity Presidency; White House Internships; State Department Internships; Governor's Office Internships; Truman Scholars; and more!

The Associate Member Program is geared toward improving the campus community and providing interested students with the tools and knowledge necessary to become involved in student government and other service-based organizations on campus. As a program affiliated with the Associated Student Government, AMP will show the associate members the inner workings of ASG, introduce them to the people who hold office, and encourage them to try out the different branches of government. By participating in AMP, associate members will have the opportunity to learn about leadership on campus, improve their professional skills, plan and carry out campus-wide events, and of course make many new friends and positive memories. Associate members serve as vital agents of ASG by reaching out to students, faculty, and organizations to identify unaddressed issues on campus and develop ideas to combat them. They will be given the opportunity to work with ASG senators and leaders to draft legislation and implement their solutions.

Associated Student Government and University Programs are programs in the Division of Student Affairs. For more information please email osa@uark.edu. Follow the Office of Student Activities on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
