December 1, 2016 – After months of advocacy by the UNB Student Union, the Fredericton UNB Senate in a meeting on Tuesday and the Saint John Senate motioned and approved a bi-campus pilot Fall Reading Week to happen during the 2018-2019 Academic year. The Student Union began its advocacy for a Fall Reading Week in the summer of 2016 by consulting with Faculty and Administration and in October a plebiscite took place in which 97% of students who voted, voted in favour of a Fall Reading Week.
