Associated Students refers to the entire enrolled student body. Therefore, every registered student at Moorpark College is a member of the Associated Students of Moorpark College, otherwise known as ASMC. Each spring semester the Moorpark College student body elects the ASMC Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is comprised of Moorpark College students who are volunteering their time to serve their campus community. ASMC's Board of Directors is recognized by Moorpark College as the sole representative body of the students. As such, ASMC is responsible for voicing the ideas, opinions, and concerns of its students, both on- and off-campus. ASMC is also at the heart of student life on campus and offers Moorpark College students opportunities to participate in social, cultural, and professional activities.
ASMC's mission is to provide a voice for Moorpark College students' ideas and concerns, and to bring civic engagement opportunities to campus. You can reach ASMC by email at ASMCBoard@vcccd.edu, or stop by the Student Activities Office, located across from the Bookstore in the Campus Center.

ASMC appoints Delegates as needed to help fulfill their mission of advocacy and student engagement. Delegate positions are a great way to get familiar with the Associated Students without having to make the same level of commitment. Sample responsibilities of Delegates include serving on Moorpark College shared governance committees (click here to see a list of some of the committees or work groups Delegates can serve on) or assisting with event or project implementation.
