The Oregon Association of Student Councils is a non-profit member association, serving middle and high schools throughout the state. We provide leadership development to both students and advisers. Our program is sponsored by the Coalition of Oregon School Administrators (COSA), and we are recognized by the National Student Council (NatStuCo).

Leadership Consulting Team

Equity and Inclusion Committee

The Equity and Inclusion Committee recently completed a three-month comprehensive review of OASC’s programming and practices, which resulted in a seven-page document containing recommended strategies and action steps to move forward with. This document was then presented to the Student Executive Council and Adult Board this past weekend and will be reviewed by the consultant team for further guidance and implementation. For those of you who are interested in following the committee’s work, stay tuned for a new page on the OASC website that will include public minutes of their business meetings, the recommended strategies and action steps document, and a roster of the committee members. Lastly, it is with great gratitude that we thank all the members who served on the Equity and Inclusion Committee for sharing their time, energy, and lived experiences in their recommendations and advocacy. OASC is indebted to these incredible leaders for stepping up to create a more inclusive and accessible organization for our students, advisers, and member schools.

A 22 member board governs the Oregon Association of Student Councils (OASC).  Ten of the board members are secondary school teachers/advisers, administrators and/or alumni who are involved in activities.  The Student Executive Council (SEC) comprises the other twelve board members: one State President, two At-Large Representatives, seven Regional Representatives and two appointed mid-level representatives.  Our constitution was ratified in 1949 and last updated in November 2018.
