Ind-2: Welcome

Welcome to Associated Students UCLA! We are pleased to have you as part of our Association’s work force.

From its beginning in 1919, student employees have played a major role in the operation and support of ASUCLA. Today, student employees continue to be a vital part of our growth and success in serving the special needs of the campus community — and especially of students.

Our ties to students both as our employees and our customers are often summarized with a well known phrase at ASUCLA: “Students Helping Students”.

Associated Students UCLA is an organization with the primary goal of enhancing — and serving — the campus community. ASUCLA began in 1919 with a small student government and bookstore, growing to become one of the largest and most progressive organizations of its type.

Our employees are our most important asset, and the policies defined in this handbook ensure a work place that allows for fair treatment and development of skills. Our “open door policy” allows you to discuss your ideas, questions or concerns with a member of supervision or management. We welcome the opportunity to become acquainted with you and to hear your ideas.

However long you’re with us, we hope your employment experience at ASUCLA enhances your college experience and contributes to your professional goals.
