SANITI was registered as an incorporated society in August 2002 as a not-for-profit charity. The Association was set up to advocate student voice and help students with any issues they have relating to studying at NMIT and being a student.

All enrolled students at NMIT are members of SANITI and are entitled to representation and services provided by the Association.

The Student President and Student Executive are elected to govern SANITI, make policy decisions, determine the Strategic/Operational Plan, and shape the direction of the association to reflect the priorities of the student body. Plans and budgets are approved by students each year. Members of the Executive are elected twice a year at the AGM [Annual General Meeting] and the SGM [Second General Meeting].

SANITI, sticks up for students, listens to students, works for students, and CELEBRATES students and their successes.

Come by or contact the office and talk to the staff about upcoming events, trips, any study issues, hardships, lost property… or whatever your concern may be – our door is always open!
