National Student Affairs Day of Action

Engaging with our representative democracy is essential to maintaining the health and function of our nation’s government. Whether you’re just getting started on your journey to becoming an engaged participant or have been active for some time, this page offers resources and suggestions for learning and engaging in local, state, and national policy conversations relevant to student affairs professionals.
