About SUNSCAD
Incorporated on November 25th, 1970, the Student Union of NSCAD University (SUNSCAD) is the collective voice for full-time and part-time students of NSCAD University. SUNSCAD advocates and represents the students of NSCAD through our Executives, Councillors, and Representatives. SUNSCAD strives to promote the artistic, educational, social, professional, and recreational activities of NSCAD Students. It is important to note that SUNSCAD is independent of the institution of NSCAD, though works closely within it to promote the interests of students.

SUNSCAD is also a founding member of the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS/FCEÉ). Through the CFS, SUNSCAD is able to work with over half a million members to provide services, and also to advocate student issues provincially and nationally.

How SUNSCAD Works
Decisions in how SUNSCAD is run is decided upon by our members, which are full-time and part-time NSCAD students. Members of the Union vote for the Executive members and Councillors every year. Around the beginning and end of each academic year, SUNSCAD will hold Annual General Meetings, where important decisions such as the SUNSCAD budget, by-law reviews and ratifying Council members are made.
