The NUSPA Global Liaison Committee (GLC) is formed as part of NUSPA’s new strategic focus on expanding the Association’s global networks with foreign student unions and associations. We believe that through global partnership and collaboration, there is greater exchange of different perspectives and views on a full spectrum of issues between youths of different nationalities and backgrounds. In turn, such exchanges can expand our youths’ knowledge horizons and enrich political discourse in Singapore. 

 

The NUSPA GLC is spearheaded by the NUSPA Presidential Committee and supported by the NUSPA Secretariat.


For more information on the NUSPA GLC, please contact NUSPA President at nuspa.president@u.nus.edu.
