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.
