Student Association Union of XTU

The Union of Xiangtan University Student Associations (hereinafter as the Union) is a self-governing organization for student associations in XTU. Under the leadership of the Youth League Committee of the university, the Union is responsible for offering services, coordination, supervision and management of 83 student associations. With a mission to create excellent association culture and foster campus elites, it has now grown into one of the most influential student organizations in the university.

The Culture Month of Student Associations elaborately designed by the Union has become a platform for each association to showcase itself and offer fantastic cultural feast for students and teachers. Meanwhile, the Joint Congress of Student Association Members, as the supreme authority of the Union, has become a highlight of the campus every March. As a unique feature of the university, it even becomes an example of the universities across the nation.

At present, the 83 registered student associations mainly involve culture, public welfare, technology, arts, sports, students' practice, and academic research. With the number of members standing at more than 20,000, every undergraduate takes part in one association on average during their school days.

The union has gradually reached a consensus on solving common problems with other unions of Hunan's universities and colleges, as mutual exchanges increased in recent years. It's a common aspiration of these unions to set up a platform on communication, study and cooperation. On the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the founding of the Union, the first Sanxiang (Hunan) Association Exchange Forum in Universities and Colleges was held in hopes of promoting the development of student association culture in Hunan, enhancing experience exchange among different unions in the province, summarizing achievements of excellent association at current stage, jointly addressing major problems hindering the development of student associations, sparing no effort for innovation, and pushing student association development to a new high.
