About NDSA
The North Dakota Student Association was created in 1969 as a way to connect with students of the North Dakota University System to the State Board of Higher Education. 

The goal of the group was originally to gather student representative from the state's eleven institutions of higher education working to stimulate awareness of rights and responsibilities of North Dakota students. Today, NDSA has become much more than that, and actively works to represent the 48,000+ students of the North Dakota University System. 

By working together, delegates from all the institutions identify and work to find solutions to the issues that face students across the state of North Dakota. 

As students of the North Dakota University System, we provide opportunities for student engagement, enhancement of the University System, and student education about issues affecting life. 

We boldly advocate for diverse student interest and are committed to maintaining open channels of communication between the students, faculty, staff, university system officials and legislators of the state of North Dakota. 

We serve with honor for the maintenance of open communication, cooperation between institutions, and beneficial discussion and support of all 11 NDUS institutions.
