Executives

NUSU’s Executive Committee is entirely composed of Nipissing University students elected by their peers. The Executive Committee is composed of 5 elected students who work full-time during the summer and part-time during the school year, in conjunction with the staff. They are responsible for the day-to-day operations of the corporation. Their duties include overseeing the operations of the Student Union, as well as representing and advocating for the student body within the university, community, and even at a national level.

Accountability is provided by the elected Student Board of Directors who debate, amend and approve all major decisions proposed by NUSU Executives and Staff.

The Executive Committee has 5 positions:

  • President
  • Vice-President Finance
  • Vice-President Governance & Legal Affairs
  • Vice-President Communications
  • Vice-President Services

These positions were created in 2015 after years of having positions named VP External, VP Internal, VP Student Life and VP Satellite. With the announcement of the closing of the Muskoka Campus the VP Satellite position has been absorbed making all 5 Executive positions now at the North Bay Campus.

These positions are paid positions and elections are held annually for students to decide whom they want to represent them.

If you are interested in applying for any of these positions in the future and want to know more information please contact Daniel Goulard at [email protected]
