organization that brings together college union and student
activities professionals from hundreds of schools in six countries.
Its members work on urban and rural campuses, in two-year and

establishment by a group of students from Midwestern universities
in 1914 to the hundreds of students and professionals who will
gather in Orlando in 2014.
