The UNC-system Association of Student Governments is a student-led organization comprising members from the student governments at each of the system’s 17 institutions.

Zach King, from N.C. State University, is the president of the association and Davonte Belle, from UNC-Charlotte, is senior vice president. 


The other schools that are a part of ASG are Appalachian State University, East Carolina University,Elizabeth City State University, Fayetteville State University, NC Agricultural and Technical University,North Carolina Central University, NC State University, UNC-Asheville, UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC Charlotte, UNC Greensboro, UNC Pembroke, UNC Wilmington, UNC School of the Arts, Western Carolina University, Winston-Salem State University and NC School of Science and Mathematics
