StudentsNS is an alliance of Nova Scotia post-secondary student associations. We give students a united voice in Nova Scotia, helping set the direction of post-secondary education by researching challenges, identifying solutions, and creating the political space needed for these solutions to happen.

Our six member associations are the Acadia Students’ Union (ASU), Saint Francis Xavier University Students’ Union (The U), Saint Mary’s University Students’ Association (SMUSA), Kingstec Nova Scotia Community College Student Association (KNSCCSA), Annapolis Valley Nova Scotia Community College Student Association (AVNSCCSA) and Marconi Nova Scotia Community College Student Association.  Taken together, we represent post-secondary students on campuses from Yarmouth to Sydney.

StudentsNS is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of Presidents and Vice-Presidents from each member association. The Executive Director manages the day-to-day operations of the organization’s staff.
