Executive Director


Robert Burroughs was hired as executive director of the New Brunswick Student Alliance in April 2016. One of those “come-from-away” types, Robert has lived and worked overseas for almost two decades.

He is a graduate of Mount Allison University’s international relations department and the University of Ottawa’s Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, specialising in Canadian defence and foreign policy.

Robert was a Global Youth Ambassador for the youth health organization Grassroot Soccer, and has been a key part of their international fundraising team for eight years. He has served as an advisor to the Global Issues Network, and most recently worked as the Deputy Executive Director of Girls’ Health Ed.

Robert was once named Ankara’s most charming bartender. The verdict on whether this was a joke is still out.
