Senior economics and computer science major Michael Kutz was elected by popular vote as the 2013-2014 Associated Students of the University of Washington (ASUW) President. Kutz campaigned on the 'Huskies Now' ticket, whose members won seven of the eight available positions with ASUW this year.
Kutz's priorities for the year include moving the campus forward by increasing funding opportunities for students and building greater community on campus by engaging students more widely in campus issues and activities.
ASUW is the democratic voice of students that engages the campus community through programming, services and advocacy. The ASUW strives to enrich student life and develop future leaders.
Kutz was previously the Director of University Affairs at ASUW and Chair of the Provost's Advisory Committee for Students. Read Kutz's ASUW board of directors blog here.
ASUW has had many other economics majors serving in elected position, most notably former Washington State Attorney General Rob McKenna, BA '85, whose daughter Madeleine McKenna, BA '11, was also ASUW president.
