Nathan Mitchell

Hey Huskies,

I’m Nathan Mitchell and I am running to be your next Director of University Affairs. In my two years of working as an ASUW senator and now the Senate On-Campus Committee Chair, I have advocated for working students and challenged the University to take more accountability for their handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. As your next Director of University Affairs, I will continue this work by holding administration and faculty accountable to the needs of all students. To accomplish this, I intend to push the University to change its focus from the financial needs of the institution to the needs of the student body.

As Director of University Affairs I will:

  • Ensure that remote and hybrid options remain available by pushing the Faculty Senate to incorporate them into instructor guidelines permanently.
  • Be a meaningful voice for student workers in communicating with faculty and administration.
  • Creating a process for joint resolutions between the Student Senates (ASUW & GPSS) and Faculty Senate so that students can advocate throughout UW. 
  • Bring back the Provost Advisory Committee for Students to make the provost accessible to student voices.
  • Move the time of course registration to make it more accessible to students.


  • ASUW Senator for Students for a Democratic Society at UW Fall 2020-Present
  • ASUW Senate On-Campus Committee Chair Fall 2021-Present
  • ASUW Senate Liason to ASUW Legislative Steering Fall 2021

Organization Membership:

  • Vice President for Students for a Democratic Society at UW
  • Vice President for Young Democrats at UW
