THE NUSP is a national alliance of student councils/unions/governments. It was established in 1957, and it is a patriotic, democratic and progressive alliance of student leaders that upholds and defends the rights and welfare of the Filipino students. As the Philippines' prime student center, NUSP unites all students in the country through their mandated representative student councils, governments and unions in the struggle for the fundamental right to education.

OBJECTIVES

  • Work for the restoration and preservation of student councils and organizations, which assert and uphold the interests of the students
  • Advocate for a nationalist, scientific and mass-oriented educational system in the country

The NUSP provides training for student leaders during its national conventions and biennial congresses. It includes input on leadership, workshops on public speaking, writing for advocacy, table battles and negotiations, etc. Upon request, the NUSP offers trainings to member
student councils.
  • Organizational discussions
Part of the NUSP organizing work is a systematic discussion on the organization’s orientation, history and line works.

The NUSP also holds fora and alternative classes tackling relevant socio-political issues which affect the Filipino youth.

  • It seeks to relate with other international youth formations for various forms of cooperation and solidarity.


STRUCTURE OF THE NUSP


The organizational structure of the NUSP is composed of the National Assembly, the National Council and the National Executive Board.

The National Assembly (NA) is the highest policy-making body composed of all the officers of the National Council including the national standing committees, all the officers of the NUSP chapters and a minimum of one delegate from each member council. The National Assembly is convened every two years (except for special sessions which can be called upon by the National Executive Board) when election of officers, adoption of policies, programs and projects and other organizational matters are forwarded by the national office or local chapters. It also acts as the constitutional body of the National Union should the need arises.

The National Convention refers to the assembly of student leaders once every two years in between the holding of the National Congress.

The National Council (NC) is the second highest policy-making body of the NUSP when the National Assembly is not in session. It is composed of the National Executive Board and all NUSP chapter representatives elected or appointed by their respective constituents. The National Council meets twice a year to assess the activities and performance of the organization and to adopt such policies and measures, as maybe necessary. In urgent cases, the National President may convene the National Council.

The National Executive Board (NEB) is the implementing and administrative body when the National Council and/or the National Assembly are not in session. It is composed of the National President, Executive Vice-President, Vice Presidents for Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao and the Secretary General. An expansion of the NEB includes the committee heads.

The NEB is tasked to formulate the rules that will govern the administration of the organization; draw up annual program of activities for the approval of the National Congress or the National Council; to act for and in behalf of the National Assembly and for the National Council on matters that require immediate actions; to prepare the agenda of and convene the session of the National Assembly subject to the concurrence of the National Council; and to define the positions of the NUSP on vital and urgent issues of the campus and national concern.

ito po'y isang gawain ng tao lalo na sa guro na iyan labag sa batas pantao,yung privacy ng tao,isang karapatan ng magaaral ay yung pag may reklamo ang guro tungkol sa problema between sa GURO at MAGAARAL,first step is the school must call the attention of his/her parent.may karapatan ang estudyante o magulang na magsampa ng reklamo laban sa guro...maaring matanggal sa Trabaho o ng lisensya sa pagtuturo yaong pag ihigpit ng reklamante ang reklamo...maaring reklamante ay kumuha ng public attorney,na syang maging taga protekta sa pamilya,lalo na sa karapatang pantao...at sa batas ng bansa't lipunan...

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I'm assuming having a
blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I hardly leave remarks, however i did some searching and wound up here "The National Union of Students of the Philippines".
And I do have a couple of questions for you if you don't mind. Could it be only me or does it seem like a few of these remarks appear as if they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing at additional places, I'd like to keep
up with everything new you have to post. Could you list of all of all your public sites
like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
