Founded in 1947 in Madison, Wisconsin, the United States National Student Association is a confederation of student bodies
at American colleges and universities represented
through their democratically-elected student government. The Association gives expression
to student opinion, seeks to increase students' responsibility and contribution to the
college community, and works to strengthen relations between American students and those
in other countries. Specific activities include operating a national clearing house for
information on student activities, cooperating with major educational and civil rights
organizations, sponsoring national student literary magazine contests and student
government achievement awards, conducting regional and national conferences, and making
studies of various student-related problems.
