The Arizona Students' Association is governed by its  Mission Statement, Vision and Value Statements:

Mission Statement:

The student-led, non-partisan Arizona Students’ Association works to actively empower the student voice, create concrete change, and advocate for student issues by developing student leaders; initiating and executing grassroots campaigns; raising awareness; creating a firm foundation on our stances through proper research; and engaging our government officials at a local, state, and national level.


The members of the Arizona Students’ Association work cohesively toward creating a just society in which generations of student leaders understand their power, engage and empower diverse communities, and advocate for student issues. We exist to better our education system in Arizona and will continually work to make the State of Arizona a societal role model in the educational realm. Our efforts transcend borders and will educate students worldwide to have a conscious, aware, and engaged mindset. We believe that students globally - and from all walks of life and varying identities - have a right to an education that “shall be as nearly free as possible” (Arizona Constitution, Article XI, Section VI).

Value Statements:

The Arizona Students’ Association affirms that, notwithstanding any other commitment to individual ties such as university, community, party, state, or nation, we will faithfully follow our guiding principles to the best of the organization’s ability:

  • We believe in working alongside students, community leaders, elected officials, and other allies from all positions on the political spectrum to advance the goals of the Arizona Students’ Association, and

  • We believe in coalescing with corporations, non-profits, advocacy groups, student governments, and other like-minded organizations who engage in activities that align with the mission of the Arizona Students’ Association, and

  • We believe in holding our government leaders accountable for transgressions against students and working to bring justice to those affected communities, and

  • We believe in civil discourse and productive dialogue to advance our goals, as determined by the leadership, and

  • We believe that all people have a right to an education regardless of background, culture, beliefs, or identity.
