ASCC - Associated Students of Clark College


The Associated Students of Clark College (ASCC) oversees a variety of activities and services which enhance the educational experience of the College's 15,000 students, and manages student fees which fund activities for 30+ campus clubs and 36 programs.

If you are enrolled in courses at Clark College, you are a member of the ASCC. The ASCC Executive Council is recognized by the Board of Trustees as the sole representative body of Clark College students. Executive Council officers gain valuable leadership and executive level experience such as leadership training, decision making, fiscal management and conflict management. Student government also keeps students informed about administrative or legislative policies that directly affect the student body.

It is the responsibility of the ASCC Executive Council to:

  • Provide representation of student interest, needs and well-being within the college community;
  • Provide opportunities for individual leadership development and for group participation;
  • Initiate and coordinate student activities;
  • Foster cooperative relationships among the students, faculty, staff, administration and community; and

ASCC Chartered Clubs

Student clubs and organizations provide you with an opportunity to combine various aspects of your academic and/or vocational learning into personal action. Through participation in a student club or organization, you learn to apply the skills and responsibilities of leadership (communication, team building, problem solving, meeting management, decision making and conflict management) and you become involved in your community. Clubs are a great way to meet other students with similiar interests and have fun while developing lifelong skills.  

What is a Chartered Student Club?

A chartered student club is any student club which has been officially recognized by the ASCC. Student clubs may exist on campus without official recognition, but will not be eligible for subsidy by the ASCC or be granted the benefits given to a chartered student club.

Chartered student clubs must be open and available to any Clark student regardless of race, creed, religion, color, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, or status as a disabled or Vietnam era veteran.

If you are interested in chartering a club, stop by the Office of Student Life and pick up a "How to Charter A Club" packet. If you have any questions, please contact the ASCC Club Coordinator.
