About GRU

The Global Relations Unit (GRU) is a student volunteer unit and part of the NUS Students’ Union. GRU aims to increase NUS’s global recognition by hosting international university students to NUS. The hosting events can range from a one-day visit to NUS or a 5-day programme such as an international Conference. GRU exists as a bridge between NUS students and the global community while providing students an opportunity to make international friends as well as broaden their horizons through interactions and networking. GRU also functions as a platform to bring students overseas and our members to represent NUS at international conferences.

About the Conference
With an increasingly integrated and interconnected world, there is an urgent need for people to exercise more individual agency to resolve the multifaceted issues of the global community today. In order to cultivate a global mindset, it is critical to expose today’s youth to the cultures and social challenges faced by different communities. To achieve this goal, the proposed 5-day NUS Global Citizen Conference with a theme of Social Inclusion is NUSSU GRU’s platform.

Participants are expected to come from NUS and international universities from around the region. Programme will include understanding the complexities and the challenges of 5 key global social issues. 

Our goal is that through discourse as well as the sharing of ideas and best practices, acceptance and better understanding will follow. Not only will participants gain an increased awareness of common global social issues but there will also be opportunities available for youths to enact change through shared ideas and solutions.

Various stakeholders of such social issues, like NGOs and speakers, will be invited to provide insights and facilitate discussion as well as learning. One of the outcomes we hope to achieve is that through the discussions, crowdsourcing of ideas and the fresh perspectives from the student participants, implementable solutions that have a lasting impact will result.
