Student Engagement

We are fortunate to have an eager group of student leaders and recent alumni who each bring unique ideas, skills and experiences to our community. The students stretch from across the province and come from a variety of campuses.  The idea for the group emerged out of an interest expressed by students to stay connected after students attended Summit 2012. Learn more about what our students have to say in this short video designed by one of our talented student members.

Based on preliminary conversations, a few ideas regarding the purpose of the group include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Facilitate cross-province student/recent alumni knowledge exchange (e.g. ideas, initiatives, research, resources, tools, etc)
  • Collaborate on joint projects, events, research, etc. (e.g., a committee planned the student/recent alumni presentation session at the 2014 HM | HC Summit)
  • Provide a ‘student voice,’ input and feedback on HM | HC related projects, resources, events, etc.
  • Advocate on provincial-level issues

The group is new and intended to be emerging and inclusive to ALL students and recent alumni who are interested in participating (recognizing that members will range in their level of involvement from observers to sharers, developers and active agenda setters, depending on their interests and availability over time).

If you are interested in learning more or getting involved, please register for the online community and join the “Student Leaders and Recent Alumni” group.  In the online group, you will have access to a webinar on advocacy strategies for student leaders, which explains how to navigate the governance structures of post-secondary institutions and move ideas into action.
