NatStuCo Update: NASC is Now National Student Council

Introducing: National Student Council.

For more than eight decades, NASC has been supporting advisers and equipping them with resources, programs, and tools to strengthen student councils, shape student leaders, and empower students to find their voice. We have always strived to implement new ideas, features, and benefits to adapt to the evolving needs of students, advisers, and councils.

With those goals in mind, we’re launching a host of program enhancements as National Student Council, designed to help you easily manage your council, take your efforts to new heights, and shape your students into the leaders of tomorrow. All of these features will complement our existing programs and services, including our signature awards programs.

Get acquainted with National Student Council’s new look and logo, and peruse all of the program’s components on our new website: www.natstuco.org.

Providing advisers with a world of support, the organization features new elements, including the following:

  • Adviser Online Community

National Student Council’s Adviser Online Community is a virtual space where you can collaborate with peers, share best practices, and seek out solutions for your questions and challenges. Join the discussion today at http://community.nassp.org/natstuco.

  • New Adviser Starter Kit

Advisers heading a brand-new council or taking over an existing one will have access to an updated comprehensive starter package online, which includes a welcome toolkit; constitution and bylaws templates; fundraising ideas and resources; and a directory of adviser and student resources. Visit the website to learn more.

  • Adviser Resource Center

Advisers and students have access to an improved online resource center on National Student Council’s website with new and enhanced tools and resources to support your efforts this school year. Visit www.natstuco.org today to learn more.

National Student Council has many more tools and resources to help students succeed as they develop their leadership skills. Stay tuned as we roll out an updated Raising Student Voice & Participation (RSVP) program, a more streamlined National Student Project Database, and an Adviser Leadership and Student Career Exploration webcast series throughout the 2017–18 school year.

Through these comprehensive programs and enhancements, both new and veteran advisers will find everything they need, and students will benefit from leadership opportunities and the chance to cultivate their own voice. With all of these features, you can rest assured that you will have the support you need from the National Student Council at your fingertips.
