The University of California Student Association (UCSA) is a student governments in the University of California (UC) system. It describes itself as providing "official representation of the student body of the University and the various campus student governments"[2] to the UC system's governance structure. The Association plays a part in various aspects of the UC system's governance, including the selection of the student representative on the UC Board of Regents.[3]

It has been noted for its opposition to education funding cuts[4][5] and increases in student fees[6][7][8] and for its support of affirmative action in enrollment policies.[9] 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.[10]
