Campaigns are a very important part of what NUSU does. Our campaigns intend to challenge society’s stereotypes, and bring awareness and support to issues that affect our students. We have hosted the following campaigns during this academic year:
The Spread the Word to End the Word movement works to promote the positive contributions people with intellectual disabilities make to communities around the world, and encourages others to make the world a more accepting place for all people.
NUSU’s Respect Campaign promoted this message by having students sign the Respect Campaign banner, and make a pledge to combat ignorance and replace with education.
BellLetsTalk Day with Jack.org Nipissing
The #BellLetsTalk is a campaign to increase awareness, reduce stigma, and change behaviours and attitudes about mental health issues. Let’s talk about what matters most.
Jack.org Nipissing has a mission to defeat the stigma around mental health and encourage students to talk about their wellbeing.
Let’s Talk About Consent, Baby
This campaign aims to teach students about consent culture on campus, how it’s going, and where it’s headed. NUSU invited a panel of amazing student leaders who spoke about the important issues still facing everyone day to day.
World Aids Day (w/ Patrick4Life)
World AIDS Day (December 1) is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection, and mourning those who have died of the disease.
This year NUSU partnered with Patrick4Life, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating youth about how to prevent the transmission of HIV. Their belief is that youth has the capacity to lead the way in preventing the spread of HIV.
NUSU set up a table where students can take a red ribbon and find out more information about HIV and AIDS and how they can help!
Try A Hijab On (Hosted by Sayyada)
This event allowed students to learn more about Muslim culture, and see what it is like to wear a hijab! Sayyada, a Nipissing University student leader, answered questions and demonstrated to students how to wear the hijab.
Nipissing University students and NUSU Executive members participated in Movember, where they raised money to support prostate and testicular cancer research as well as men’s mental health awareness.
Weighing In On Men’s Health
This event was part of the Movember campaign, and provided students with workout tips to improve their overall health and workout goals!
