As referenced in our previous article, ASUCM has arguably become an inaccessible platform for students. There are large time gaps between uploading of legislative and executive meeting minutes, and various broken links on its webpage. Below are the multiple broken webpage links within the ASUCM webpage, as of 03/25/2018.

All of August and half of the September minutes were not uploaded until the end of September (25th).

  • September 20th Meeting Minutes are missing.
  • Three November Meeting Minutes are missing.
  • All December Meeting Minutes are missing.
  • All of the Spring Semester Meeting Minutes were not added until March 22nd.

  1. As an alum, I find this embarrassing for ASUCM. This is real world practice for life after college and you all are proving how unequipped you would be for a post grad job. If you speak about ASUCM or put ASUCM on your resume, your employers will look up ASUCM after your interview if they are impressed enough. They will not be impressed by what they find.
