Framing A Comprehensive Vision for the U.S. National Student Association in 1947
- Including the Constitution of the USNSA, and Highlights for a National Student Agenda
The original NSA Constitution, its supporting policy statements and an overview of its form of organization are excerpted from the anthology and sourcebook, American Students Organize: Founding the National Student Association after World War II (Praeger. 2006). The founding of the U.S. National Student Association (NSA) in September of 1947 was an expression of the interests and world view of the GI Bill generation of American students.
The student leaders who emerged after the war had no patience for the old ways of paternalism, elitism, discrimination and segregation. Believing strongly in the nation's founding principles of "liberty and justice for all," they brought this vision into their religious, social and political organizations and into the halls of student government. These documents are an expression of that vision.
