Our mission is to enhance the NAIT student experience by advocating for their rights, representing their voice, creating a culture of engagement and leadership, while providing student-driven services. We offer a wide variety to choose from including events and activities for your entertainment; academic questions and aid; facilities to study and party; and living and health support.
The NAIT Students’ Association works hard to protect the best interests of our students both within NAIT, and at the municipal, provincial and federal government levels. Our student leaders are elected annually by the student body and are organized into the Student Senate, and the Student Executive. The Senate is composed of two elected students from each school within NAIT and provides the oversight of the organization. The Executives are comprised of the President, Vice President Academic, Vice President External and Vice President Internal. Each Executive holds a portfolio that encompasses different aspects of student life and they work full time driving important student initiatives. Any full-time students have the option to run for Senate or Executive Council.
For more information on current Student Executives and what it’s like in the life as a Student Executive, please see the “Your Student Government” section of the website.
NAITSA is proud of the opportunities we provide for students to develop their soft skills, sometimes not available in every classroom. Volunteering, part time employment
opportunities, and Clubs are all great places to network, learn leadership skills, and build your resume.
