WHAT IS ODSA?
To promote professional competency, efficiency, and associate of members and others associated with and concerned about student assistance programs.

- Participants served by the programs, community, parents, and schools
- Institutions and agencies hosting the programs and others offering services
- Other programs serving educational needs
- Local, state, and regional organizations
- Regional and national offices of the Department of Education
To provide for improved communication between institutions and agencies sponsoring student assistance programs.
To foster a commitment to develop bold and innovative educational programs designed to provide opportunities for eligible participants to initiate, continue or resume secondary and/or post secondary education.
To promote and provide individual and cooperative studies, research, workshops, seminars, conferences, effective models and related activities as may be desired or required to fulfill the purposes of the Association.
To develop, maintain, and disseminate data pertinent to resolving issues to all bona fide participants and officials of student assistance programs.
To participate in ethical efforts geared to guarantee all membership equal rights, privileges, and benefits.
