Nipissing University Alumni Advisory Board

Your Nipissing University Alumni Advisory Board (NUAAB) is an integral part of the University community. When you graduate from Nipissing University, you automatically become a lifetime member of the Nipissing University Alumni Association at no charge and part of a wide network of NU Alumni who are making an impact!

The NUAAB is guided by up to ten Nipissing University Alumni with additional student and community representation. The NUAAB has three main objectives:

  • supporting and advancing the cause of the University by strengthening its standards and reputation for academic excellence through dedication and financial generosity;
  • promoting interest and understanding of the Association's objectives among undergraduates of the University;
  • encouraging and promoting a sense of collegiality and unity among members and providing an opportunity to continue associations enjoyed as students.

Alumni Services include:

  • Preferred home and auto insurance rates with TD Insurance Meloche Monnex
  • MBNA Canada MasterCard
  • Canada Life Alumni Insurance products and services
  • Perkopolis - discounts on everything from movie tickets to shopping
  • Preferred membership rate at the Robert J. Surtees Student Athletics Centre and access to the Harris Learning Library
  • and more!

Keep us updated on your current whereabouts and life milestones, or follow us on Facebook and Twitter! There are many opportunities for Alumni to be actively involved with Nipissing University. As an alumnus/a, you serve as an ambassador for all that Nipissing has to offer. Graduation is the beginning of a new relationship with Nipissing University, one that we hope will continue to offer you the Nipissing experience that you know and love!

NUSA Degree Frames

It has taken years of hard work, so proudly display your Nipissing University degree in an elegant custom official Nipissing University degree frame! Each year during Convocation, NUSA provides a degree framing service. You can have your degree framed on the spot - it only takes a few minutes. If you pre-order your degree frames for your degree or if you would like to have your degree framed and your degree has already been conferred earlier in the academic year, please bring your degree with you to the framing tables in the Nipissing University main entrance foyer.

These special frames highlight your degree and your pride in being a Nipissing University graduate! Proceeds from the program are used to support on-going student programs and services.

A 10% discount is offered for all pre-orders before May 2, 2017. Degree frames can be pre-ordered online using VISA or MasterCard. Cash or cheque payments can be made at the Student Development and Services Office.

If you are attending Convocation, you will be able to pick up your degree frame at the Pre-Paid table located in the Surtees Centre Foyer. *Please note there is an additional $12.50 for shipping within Canada for those not attending Convocation.

If you would like more information on the NUSA degree-framing program, please contact the Student Development and Services Department at 705.474.3450 ext. 4573 or email
