Nigerian International Student Agenda (NISA)
NISA is an acronym for the Nigerian International Students Agenda, which is an initiative of the Xn Foundation. It will act as the umbrella forum for the Nigerian International Student community on several developmental projects.
NISA is a student led forum, which means that its programmes will be directed solely by its members, principally through the NISA forum. It was inaugurated during the International Conference of Nigerian Students (ICONS) 2007 at the University of Lancaster. The aim is that the forum will be governed by the Xn Foundation Board.
NISA is an initiative to project the ambitions of Nigerian students worldwide and represent their interests. It will act as the umbrella forum for the Nigerian International Student community on several developmental projects. The NISA FORUM will be hosted during the International Conference of Nigerian Student (ICONS) events. We hope to have one day NISA FORUM activities in the future independent of the ICONS event.
The aim is that
It will have a forum where ideas, proposals and creative skills (poetry, musical, scripting, art work, academic papers etc), are displayed online by interested Nigerian students.
It will be an advisory network on academic report writing, thesis and dissertation proposal development, professional consultations on different course areas, help and support for the Nigerian International Student.
The structure will be largely determined by students. It will however be under the general oversight of Xn Foundation.
