Universal Student U-PASS Advisory Board

The Universal Student U-PASS Advisory Board is the student-run oversight committee for the Universal Student U-PASS program. Six representatives are appointed by the Associated Students of the University of Washington (ASUW) and three by the Graduate and Professional Student Senate (GPSS). The Board works with advisers from UW Transportation Services and UW Student Life to represent student interest in the U-PASS program and ensure its long-term health and effectiveness.

It is the responsibility of the advisory board to report and make recommendations to the ASUW and GPSS regarding the program, including, but not limited to, fee changes and cancellation.

The advisory board is subject to the U-PASS Memorandum of Understanding as well as the committee’s own bylaws. The bylaws govern the conduct of the committee, whereas the Memorandum of Understanding acts as the authority by which the committee can operate. Each meeting of the advisory board begins with a public comment period, as required by the bylaws.

Upcoming meeting notice: The Advisory Board has adjourned for the summer. Regular meetings will resume in the fall.
