Our Mission

Students have the power to shape the future we will inherit. We work with professional staff at colleges and universities to make sure our peers have the skills, opportunities and training they need to create a better, more sustainable future for all of us. Our chapters provide the training, professional support and resources students need to tackle climate change, protect public health, revitalize our democracy, feed the hungry and more. Students have been at the forefront of social change throughout history, from civil rights, to voting rights to protecting the environment. For over 40 years we’ve helped students to get organized, mobilized and energized so they can continue to be on the cutting edge of positive change.

OSPIRG Students recognizes that inequality harms all of us and exasperates public interest issues such as pollution, climate change and problems with public health, and our democracy. We champion and advocate for the multiple identities of staff, students, and coalition partners.  We seek to enlist all people in our organization and projects. We are invested in diverse and equal opportunity engagement and recruitment as a core value, and invite anyone and everyone interested in our programs to apply for jobs and internships, or volunteer. We do not discriminate based on race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, age, sex, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, or political affiliation.
