The goals and mission of the Associated Students of Northern Arizona University are as follows:
The primary purpose of ASNAU is to serve NAU as the representative student voice at the campus, local, state and national levels. We are to become informed on every issue concerning Northern Arizona University and communicate that knowledge and information to the students.
In order to accomplish this, we must provide every opportunity for students to have their opinions heard by creating an atmosphere that seeks student input and student involvement.
As the representative student body, we seek to promote NAU and its activities including but not limited to: Academics, Athletics, Special Events, Community relations, and Student Activities.
Our goal is to provide every student with information about current legislation and various opportunities to be represented.
We see a primary responsibility of ASNAU as serving as the liaison between NAU students, faculty, staff, administrators and alumni. In those efforts we seek to create a relationship of open communication and respect among all divisions in the University.
