History

The Missouri Students Association (MSA) is MU’s official undergraduate student government.

Student government has a long history at the University of Missouri. The Student Government (SG) was originally established in 1911 and it consisted of two groups: the Student Council and the Student Senate. In 1923, a new constitution reorganized the former body into the Student Government Association (SGA), which had three branches: executive, legislative, and judicial. During World War II, the Student War Board temporarily replaced the SGA, which was reinstated in 1946. In 1959, the Student Government Association adopted a new constitution, which reorganized the SGA into the Missouri Students Association. The new constitution allowed the MSA and other student organizations to work more closely together for the benefit of the student body.

Today, the MSA continues to provide MU undergraduate students with a multitude of services and activities.
