Cesar Aguilar

Executive Director

Cesar became the Executive Director for ASA in April of 2018.  Cesar has served as an intern, NAU campus organizer, and legislative affairs director.  Cesar studied at Northern Arizona University and received his bachelors in political science.  Cesar has worked on various political campaigns not only in Arizona but as well as Virginia.  Cesar was raised in a working class family and continues to fight for students who come from working families so that they have the same accessibility to higher education he was provided with.  Cesar truly believes that college affordability is no longer available and is why he has been so dedicated to ASA, because he believes "EDUCATION IS A RIGHT"


"I would have never imagined that 6 years later after starting my internship I would be running this organization.  This organization has come a long way since 1974.  The battles it has occurred over the years make me proud to wake up in the morning and see that I am on the right side of history with students.  I am a huge supporter of ASA and will defend the organization till the end because it has offered me so many opportunities and has developed me into an educational leader.  I have a lot of goals for this organization but I must remind myself that everything takes time.
