The Missouri Student Association

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 Liason to the MSA Auxiliaries.
