ISSUE CAMPAIGNS

Each spring, during a state-wide Delegates Assembly, students take exciting and bold action to prioritize the work of our organization. Every year, Students United student leaders utilize a document called, The Student Platform to guide organizing work on campuses. However, this is a lengthy and comprehensive document, so students decided to make sure Students United leadership focused on particular issues that are viewed as most pressing. And to that end, Students United is excited to announce the creation of four issue campaigns for this academic year. The four issue campaigns chosen are listed below. Click on each of the links to learn more about each one!
