Vice-President Academic

The VP Academic oversees the Academic Committee which is responsible for organizing academic related events for NPSIA students throughout the year. Examples of events we held last year are workshops (Public Speaking, Excel Tutorial), Lunch and Learns sessions on a variety of topics of interest in international affairs, speaker sessions, a visit to Global Affairs Canada, Embassy Visits and the NPSIA Trends in International Affairs Conference. The conference is a main responsibility under the VP Academic and is held in March during research month. Last year, the conference was a 2 day event that featured a keynote speaker, 15 student academic presentations and a panel discussion. The nice part about this position is that you have a lot of flexibility in terms of what events you plan, as they should be based on student demand and interest. Note that it is one of the busier positions on the NPSIA executive so make sure that you have the time to commit to it and that you have a great committee willing to share the responsibility!
