Head Delegates are student leaders who are responsible for informing their institution’s delegates about NDSA and upcoming meetings, submitting a roster of all voting and non-voting delegates prior to each meeting, informing their student body about NDSA, and serving as a contact point for NDSA on their campus.
To do this, they work directly with the NDSA’s Executive Team. Policies on selecting Head Delegates differ based on the institution, but it is required that a policy be in place to do so. If you’re interested in joining or learning more about NDSA, contact your institution’s Head Delegate with the information listed below.
