About the Council

The NSU is run by a council of 7 students who serve the membership by providing services, hosting events, and advocating for Indigenous student rights and equality. Decisions and communications are done through weekly council meetings, and all members may voice opinions, and registered undergraduate students may vote.

Details about Council responsibilities, and about the core council positions are in the NSU Constitution.
