The University of California Student Association (UCSA) is an association of student governments in the University of California system. It has been noted for its opposition to education funding cuts[1][2] and increases in student fees[3][4][5] and for its support of affirmative action in enrollment policies.[6] The association mobilizes students via voter registration campaigns; it recorded 26,000 new voter registrations in 2006, and added 12,300 new registrations in 2008 for the California Democratic and Republican primaries.[7]


As of the 2013-2014 academic year, UCSA's board of directors represent a number of University of California student governments:[8]
