FREDERICTON, N.B 一 STUSU President, Husoni Raymond was elected as Vice-Chair of the New Brunswick Student Alliance (NBSA). The former Vice-President Administration started his term as President on May 1st, 2019. During his term as Vice-President Administration, Raymond focused much of his time on internal advocacy by creating the Student Advisory Committee which helps students understand university policies and procedures.

“I am excited to take on the role of Vice-Chair of the NBSA. The STUSU has a strong tradition of being heavily involved with external advocacy and that is something I’m looking forward to continuing for the benefit of our students”, said Raymond. “I have witnessed the great things the NBSA has accomplished for students, and I intend to continue influencing policy for the betterment of the Post-Secondary Sector in New Brunswick.”

The NBSA was instrumental in securing $1.5 Million for the development of the Student Experiential Learning Fund, which is apart of an $18.5 Million investment in experiential learning for Post-Secondary students within the province. Through this funding, St. Thomas University was able to create over 50 internships and summer placements throughout this year―giving our students valuable work experience before completing their degrees.

“I am looking forward to working with Husoni. He is passionate about improving the Post-Secondary Education Sector, and his passion will help to push the organization forward,” said Kjeld-Mizpah Conyers-Steede, Executive Director of the NBSA.

The New Brunswick Student Alliance is the largest student organization in New Brunswick, representing almost 13,000 Post-Secondary students at St Thomas University, Mount Allison University, and the University of New Brunswick’s Fredericton and Saint John campuses.

Raymond’s role within the NBSA will ensure that the concerns of St. Thomas University students are amplified at the provincial level.
