Gain Experience | Get Paid | Get Heard
It’s your chance to have your voice heard! SAMU and MacEwan are looking for students to join various committees! With options ranging from finance, IT, and university governance, there’s so many great ways to get involved! MacEwan offers students a chance to get directly involved with policy and decision-making that affects our whole community. Each prospect presents a chance to develop your skills as a student, your leadership skills, and your analytic talents. The deadline for these committees varies by group.

SAMU Committees

Sitting on a SAMU or university committee is a fantastic experience with tons of personal and professional benefits. If you are thinking of having a career in politics, arts, business, or science you should consider sitting on a committee. 

Throughout the academic year, dozens of opportunities open up for students to sit on committees and help guide our institution and our students’ association, making life a little easier for students.

By sitting on a committee you’ll have the opportunity to 

  • Gain leadership experience 
  • Refine your communication skills
  • Work and strengthen your soft skills (the skills employers look for!) 
  • Make a lasting impact on MacEwan
  • Bolster your resume and outshine your future competition 
  • Network with the university staff and administration 

We’re still looking for students to sit on all committees!

SAMU Programs aim to provide students with activities and opportunities to learn about wellbeing, as well as raising awareness about various resources available to students, both in and outside the MacEwan community.

Our mission is to provide ongoing and one-off programming with the direct aim to improve the long-term wellbeing of MacEwan students and their community.

SAMU Programs consist of the Student Refugee Program (SRP), StressLess, Sustainability, SAMU Cares, and Artworks. SAMU Programs also runs a variety of other programming and interactive campaigns, blog posts, hands out wellness bags, and organizes activities that fall under two umbrellas of focus – Wellbeing and Community.

Please note, all SAMU programming is subject to change as we respond to updates and guidelines for COVID-19.

Student Refugee Program

Each term, $2.50 of your student fees goes towards supporting SAMU’s Student Refugee Program (SRP). Working with World University Service of Canada (WUSC), SRP funds the tuition and housing of a refugee student for four years. With the help of a local committee group made up of students and staff, SAMU ensures all the sponsored student’s needs are met throughout their time at MacEwan.
