The Master’s University Associated Student Body is a ministry of Student Life and strives to promote the interests and welfare of the students and to make provision for the decent and orderly administration of student affairs. We serve as a vital link between the students and the administration and are closely involved in almost all campus events.

We are comprised of an seven-member Executive Council and a group of senior dorm representatives and dorm representatives that are assigned to every TMU community.

Purpose Statement

“To creatively and faithfully invest in our campus through intentional communication, purposeful events, and joyful service to, through, and because of our great Savior Jesus Christ.”
