Individual Advocacy

WELCOME TO YOUR INDIVIDUAL ADVOCACY SUPPORT HUB 

Our goal is to ensure all MacEwan students have access to support when experiencing academic or non-academic issues. We offer a confidential service where you can receive ongoing support, policy information, and advocacy efforts made with your rights in mind.

A Centre Representative can support students in two different capacities, which during an initial consultation is agreed upon between the student and the Centre Representative.   

One way a Centre Representative can support students is by providing Consultation Support. Some of the ways this representative may offer consultation support are: 

  • Providing policy information 
  • Accompanying students to their meetings with MacEwan as a silent support person 
  • Alerting students of potential policy breaches 
  • Giving overarching edits on letters students write to the University  
  • Optional debriefs with students after they have a meeting with the University   

      The other way a Centre Representative can support students is by providing Representation Support. Some of the ways this representative may offer representation support are: 

      • Providing policy information 
      • Accompanying students to all of their meetings with MacEwan as a support person
      • Alerting students of potential policy breaches 
      • Editing all letters and emails students write to the University  
      • Mandatory debriefs with students after they have a meeting with the University
