Student Auxiliary Enterprises is the shared services organization of Associated Students, Inc. and Beach Shops. These two nonprofit organizations operate under Student Affairs and have played a vital role supporting students and the campus community for 70 years.
In the summer of 2022, the auxiliaries established a formal shared services collaboration to provide shared management and combined expertise to better serve both entities. This collaboration has enabled cost-saving partnerships and streamlined processes while maintaining independent legal statuses and missions. The collaborative approach promotes cooperation and synergy with continued shared governance.
To commence this shared management approach, five teams have integrated to align strategies, streamline operations, and foster effective communication for both organizations. These departments include:
This initial integration lays the foundation for effective shared management and long-term financial solvency that will allow Student Auxiliary Enterprises to continue serving students for years to come.
- 735 Student assistants
- 215 Full-time and part-time
Funds Back to Students
- Over $2 million in scholarships, grants, event funding and donations to students
