The University Senate is the representative body of the Academic Assembly, which includes the following: all tenured and tenure-eligible faculty, academic professionals, and full-time contract faculty (i.e. lecturers and senior lecturers, instructors, clinical faculty, research faculty, and professors of practice). Members may be nominated (or nominate themselves) as candidates and then are elected into office. (https://usenate.asu.edu/about/shared-governance)
Faculty are also represented at the Arizona Board of Regents by the chair of the Arizona Faculties Council – the coordinating body for the faculty governments of the three universities.

Non-academic staff:
The ASU Staff Council is the representative body of university staff employees. The purpose and mission of the ASU Staff Council is to serve as a voice for university staff, to advise the President of ASU on the working climate, and to raise issues and concerns of university staff. The Staff Council also works to support university staff through various activities and initiatives.
