Under this new direction, ASUM has placed an increased focus on campus programming and student events. Campus engagement remains a central part of the organization’s mission. Over the course of the 2012-2013 academic year, ASUM was able to host numerous events on each campus and at the state capitol.Next year, we plan to increase the number of these events. Events for the 2013-2014 academic year are being planned, including a series of town hall style informational sessions designed to educate students on current legislative affairs. These gatherings will provide students with an outlet to voice their concerns and/or questions in an informal environment. Campus presidents will also play a more important role in the coming year, acting as liaisons between the Legislative Internship program and their respective student bodies. ASUM continues to help bridge the gap between Jefferson City and each campus. Through our “Make a Stand” rally and ASUM Board of Directors Lobby Day, we were successful in giving students from each campus the opportunity to personally interact with Missouri legislators.
