No, it doesn't sound correct. We are a small team of volunteers working
for the love of Art under the Ubuntu (canonical) umbrella, and we
haven't given you any such promises. Have you talked to Canonical? They
are the only ones that may pronounce themselves on this level. The
Ubuntu Studio developer team is dedicated to package multimedia software
into an Ubuntu flavor for multimedia production. You *cannot* expect
Ubuntu _Studio_ to prioritize your schools matter over any other user.

It is sort of correct. If you file a bug, if anyone file a bug, an Ubuntu developer will take a look and evaluate. There is no guarantee the bug will be fixed, just as for anyone, and it will most likely not be anyone in the Ubuntu Studio team as most of the current members are not developers. However, we and the Ubuntu flavours work to get bug fixed by getting help upstream either in Ubuntu or even Debian. The great thing by using open source is that NEC can also help out solving bugs, by reporting them, testing or even contribute to the code (if possible).

So, IMHO, if NEC students provide bug reports Ubuntu contributors will respond. I can't make any promises about fixes though and prioritization is done concerning the bug itself, how many are affected etc, not depending on who does the actual report. There won't be any special process for handling bugs from NEC. If NEC students and employees would become active in the communities you have greater possibilities to make your wishes and needs heard and be able to bring changes forward.
