WSU students leaders from the Student Government Association, the Community and Leadership Experience at Worcester State program, Presidential Student Ambassadors, and other student organizations such as the Dance Club, heard from Massachusetts Secretary of Education Matthew Malone.

Students United!, the annual Massachusetts Public Higher Education Student Leadership Conference, provides an opportunity for leaders in student government and other campus activities to discuss issues of importance with leaders from state government and learn how to further develop their leadership skills. It is attended each year by approximately 200 students, representing the 29 public colleges and universities in Massachusetts, and is organized by the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education in cooperation with the Massachusetts Student Advisory Council.
