advocacy Groups

Internal Advocacy
Lobbying within the University itself can often be overlooked as a form of advocacy, but the UNBSU believes it is absolutely imperative in changing post-secondary education for the better. Our VP Internal and Student Senators lead the charge for students within UNB’s senate, advocating for positive changes to academic policy and substantial reforms to academic program regulations. For academic advocacy matters, contact our VP Internal, at internal@unbsu.ca. 

Municipal Advocacy
On the municipal level, the UNBSU works with a number of different groups in Fredericton to make sure students are well-represented and present in major decisions affecting our city. Most prominently, our VP External is a member of the Mayor’s working group, which examines student issues from housing to transit service and more. If you’d like to know more about the NBSA, or any of our lobbying initiatives, please contact our VP External, at advocacy@unbsu.ca.
