Correspondence, reports, memoranda, minutes of meetings, bulletins, circulars, questionnaires, notes, lists, financial records, printed matter, photographs, and sound recordings, relating to the international activities of the association, including delegation and scholarship exchanges with other nations, American representation at annual International Student Conferences, relations with analogous student organizations abroad, and the effects of world politics on education.
Background
Founded in 1947 in Madison, Wisconsin, the United States National Student Association is a confederation of student bodies at American colleges and universities represented through their democratically-elected student government. The Association gives expression to student opinion, seeks to increase students' responsibility and contribution to the college community, and works to strengthen relations between American students and those in other countries. Specific activities include operating a national clearing house for information on student activities, cooperating with major educational and civil rights organizations, sponsoring national student literary magazine contests and student government achievement awards, conducting regional and national conferences, and making studies of various student-related problems.
