The NBSA works closely with key stakeholders and decision-makers to advance our vision of an affordable, accessible, and high-quality post-secondary education system whose students enjoy an exceptional quality of life, and to turn our policy priorities into reality.
We believe that engaging in the political process by working with the New Brunswick government is key to ensuring that students’ concerns are heard. We work hard to communicate our positions to government clearly and transparently. Our location in the heart of Fredericton allows us to meet with the Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour on a regular basis and to participate in government committees, task forces, and working groups. Since 2014, the NBSA has also hosted an annual Advocacy Week where student leaders meet with Members of the Legislative Assembly and government staff to advance our policy recommendations.
The NBSA’s stakeholder relations also extend beyond government to include university administrators, faculty associations, and other third-party allies including fellow non-profit organizations. The NBSA is constantly working on all fronts toward a better post-secondary education system for all.
