In addition to having a lot of fun and meeting new friends, getting involved in the Residents' Council will help you develop strong leadership and organizational skills.
Residents' Council is responsible for planning residence activities (such as the popular Movie Under The Stars event, coffee houses, and skating parties) as well as acting as a representative body which supports the needs of you - the residents. The Nipissing University Residents’ Council (NURC) focuses on building a strong sense of community while encouraging residents to gain new skills, learn about their diverse world, strive for overall wellness, and become an active member of their community.
We encourage all students to become an integral part of the working gears behind programming and representation in residence - the Residents' Council! If you have any questions about Residents' Council, membership opportunities, or the duties of the NURC Executive listed on this website a current member of the NURC Executive would be happy to help you.
Membership Opportunities for Student Leaders
The NURC General Council is the perfect opportunity for students interested in leadership positions within their community. The NURC General Council is composed of various committees and positions which strive to involve members of the residence community in a variety of social and educational opportunities.
Committees in the North Bay NURC General Council include: Yearbook, Representative, Athletics and Wellness, Social, and Community Action. All residents are welcome to participate in each of these committees throughout the year. Committee Chair positions will be available in September and will be elected by a vote of those in the committee.
Another leadership opportunity available for interested students are Floor/Section and Complex Representative positions. The Floor/Section and Complex Representatives will be elected by your floor/section communities in September and are active members of the residence community who promote programming initiatives and (as outlined in their title) represent students within the Residence Life Team. These students also complete monthly bulletin boards and run collaborative programs with Residence Dons.
