The quality of the NUIN program, not only in terms of the scientific training, but also the overall experience, depends critically on good communication between NUIN leadership and NUIN students. One way this is accomplished is via the NUIN Student Advisory Committee (NSAC). The NSAC meets with NUIN leadership formally at least once a quarter. In addition to representing and advocating for the views and needs of their peers, NSAC representatives are expected to serve as student leaders by helping to organize student participation in NUIN activities such as the annual retreat and recruiting events.
Each fall the NSAC representatives are elected as follows: 2 from the 1st year class, 2 from the 2nd year class, and 2 representing students in their 3rd year or beyond. One postdoc representative will also be chosen. Representatives from each group are elected by the students, and serve for one year.
