Welcome to NDSA!

The North Dakota Student Association represents the voice of North Dakota’s 45,000 public college and university students. We are an organization directly funded by students with the singular interest of representing students. We believe the Voice of the Students needs to be present in the policymaking process that occurs through the North Dakota University System, State Legislature, and State Board of Higher Education.

NDSA attracts a diverse range of individuals from across the state’s 11 public campuses, and each student joins us with their own thoughts, priorities and beliefs. Despite our differences we stand united in our support of higher education in the state of North Dakota.

NDSA meets as a General Assembly on a monthly basis during the academic year to discuss student concerns and higher education policy.
