Welcome

DASB Senate Group Picture from Winter 2020

Each year, a group of diverse and passionate students come together under the DASG umbrella to represent student interests on college and district committees that develop college policies.

The De Anza Student Government (DASG) Senate composed of one President, one Vice President, eight other Executive Officers, and twenty Senators. Together, these thirty individuals give voice to and fight for the students of De Anza on campus, in the district, and at the Statewide level.

Each Senate member is elected by the students in winter, sworn in at the end of spring, and are in office until the end of the next next spring. Senate seats may become available during the academic year for those who want to become senators mid-term.

Stay current on DASG events & news.
