The executive committees that are overseen by the executive branch of Student Government are commonly referred to as super committees and exist to execute the operations of the Student Government.

Standing committees are work groups made up of Associated Students (A.S.) senators who research student issues, deliberate, and develop reports, resolutions, policies or statements in response to those issues.
