Historical Note

The Associated Students of The University of Montana (ASUM) is the university's student government organization. Founded in May of 1906, ASUM serves as a forum for students to express their needs to The University of Montana administration as well as to the Montana state government. From 1936-1965, the organization was known as the Associated Students of Montana State University (ASMSU) reflecting the name change of the university. In its early years ASUM operated a general store and the university bookstore; today one of its primary functions is the allocation of money to student groups through yearly student group requests and a once a year budgeting process.

Content Description

This record group contains correspondence, budget records, general store records, scrapbooks, miscellaneous materials, general ASUM meeting minutes, Central Board Meeting Minutes and other records generated from 1906-2010.
