Robertson Institute for Community Leadership

Launched in 2014, NBCC’s award-winning Robertson Institute for Community Leadership is mobilizing students, staff, alumni and Board members from across the College to transform lives and communities.

Across our six campus regions, a Signature Learning Experience (community leadership) is at the heart of NBCC. Community Leadership Certification and volunteer and service learning activities, together with an inspiring speaker series, provide participants with opportunities to develop important interpersonal skills, such as communications, teamwork and creative problem solving. These skills help set our students apart in their careers… and in their lives, and help them more competently contribute to New Brunswick’s socio-economic prosperity and quality of life.

To create this culture of leadership and service we are engaging our students and staff, building bridges with our communities and partners, and spreading a spirit of service across our Province.

There are opportunities for everyone at NBCC to get involved!

  • Learn through Community Leadership Certification
  • Volunteer on Service Days and beyond
  • Be inspired throughout our Speaker Series

For community organizations interested in getting involved, partner with us to provide volunteer or service learning activities for our students, staff, alumni and Board members.

Let's inspire one another as we learn to lead together and #transformNB!
