About Us

ZINASU is a conglomeration of tertiary students across Zimbabwe; provides national student representation plus demand driven solidarity and support to the student movement and human rights defenders in Zimbabwe, has student victims of human rights abuse in terms of the privatisation of education and attack on academic freedoms as its primary target group for its initiatives and also thrives for female participation in defence of democracy and human rights as this has proved to be a major challenge for almost all mass movements in Zimbabwe.

Historically, the Zimbabwe National Students Union (ZINASU) has been at the centre of providing relevant, effective national student representation of Zimbabwean college students. This has been the history or trajectory of ZINASU since the turn of the new millennium from the glorious days of the late 1990s and early years of the new millennium, which saw our institution winning the prestigious International Students Peace Prize for Human Rights in Norway in 2003.

ZINASU has 44 member instutions who constitute its General Council and hence Congress.
It brings together student representatives (SRCs) from these various institutions.
