What is MSA?

The Missouri Students Association is the recognized undergraduate student government at the University of Missouri. We represent students at the university and are committed to sharing their interests and advocating for issues they face. MSA provides students with many opportunities to explore campus and make the most of their experience at the University of Missouri.

The Executive

The MSA Executive Branch is led by the President and Vice-President, who are elected by the undergraduate students at the University of Missouri every Spring. The President and Vice-President assemble a team of student leaders from across campus to institute new student services and programs. The Vice-President also serves as the Association’s Liaison to the MSA Auxiliaries.

The Senate comprises of 80 students from different academic programs and organizations from across campus who collaborate on student policies and opinions.

What are the MSA Auxiliaries?

The Missouri Students Association currently operates three student-ran auxiliary programs to help meet the emerging needs of our campus community. Auxiliaries are student ran and operated programs supported by MSA, the Graduate Professional Council (GPC), and the University of Missouri that provide direct service and support to students, faculty, and staff.

Tiger Pantry

Tiger Pantry strives to assist, educate, and empower those facing food insecurity within the University of Missouri community. We advocate for changing the perception of hunger on campus and to offer resources to students, faculty, and staff so that they may focus on the experiences uniquely available at Mizzou.
