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 Confederation of Oregon School Administrators (COSA), and we are recognized by the National Association of Student Councils (NASC).

We are governed by an Executive Board comprised of 10 adults and 11 students. Our original constitution was written in 1949, and since that time, OASC has become the premier student leadership organization in Oregon. Each year we serve thousands of students and advisers from member schools across the state. Some of the opportunities for leadership and character development that we offer include:

  • Fall Middle School Regional Workshops
  • Annual Fall Conference for high school leaders and advisers
  • Winter Energizer “mini-camp”
  • Annual Spring Conference for high school and middle level leaders and advisers
  • Summer Leadership Camps
  • Summer Adviser Leadership Institute
  • Adviser training at our state events
  • Membership networking opportunities

Each year we present a number of awards to honor our members, including the OASC Adviser of the Year Award (in both high school and middle levels) and our Student Council Recognition Program.

Our goal is to have this website be a useful resource for both students and advisers across Oregon. We routinely post the latest information on our upcoming conferences and workshops, and make registration and membership forms available to you here 24 hours a day!

We’re glad you’re here!

Sara Nilles,
OASC Executive Director
