As an organization that aims to operate within a trauma informed, anti-oppressive, anti-racist framework, NSPIRG recognizes and values the lived experiences of people who experience systemic oppression, marginalization and discrimination. We acknowledge that formal education is privileged in our society, however, it is only one of many valid ways of learning and knowing. In acknowledgement of this, NSPIRG strives to place value on relationship building and community outreach skills, rather than focus solely on formal education. NSPIRG welcomes and prioritizes the contributions, perspectives, and lived experiences that individuals from marginalized communities/groups bring to our organization’s work.

NSPIRG operates as a student society of Dalhousie and King’s – it is therefore tied to academic structures and language. We understand this is not accessible knowledge to everyone, and wish to make the terms used in this job description available to all. You can find a physical copy of our Language Accessibility Statement on our office door (room 24 of the Dal SUB basement) or view the online form on our website or facebook:
