Academic Writing Support

This year, the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences is offering tutoring services in writing. A trained writing tutor from the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) will be available to meet with students in 30-minute appointments in the Agriculture Library. She will work with students at any stage of the writing process. For example, the tutor can help students start their papers, improve the organization of their writing, and build citing and referencing skills.

If you would like to make an appointment, please make your appointment early as the appointments may fill up quickly. To make an appointment online, please register for an account and use the schedule at

Leadership Development Programs

The University of Manitoba Student Leadership Development Programs provide U of M students with the opportunity to develop comprehensive leadership skills by exploring a multitude of leadership techniques, theories and models through interactive workshops and activities.

All University of Manitoba students, undergraduate and graduate, are welcome to apply to these programs. Program participants must be enrolled as students for the term in which they are applying.
Students are selected based on how well they meet certain criteria in their application. The following criteria are used to select students, though additional criteria may apply to certain programs:  

  • an expressed desire to enhance leadership potential
  • the ability to commit to completing all program requirements
  • good academic standing (minimum grade point average of 2.5).

 SLDP-I: Individual Leadership - This program helps answer questions that we don’t often consider for ourselves: Who am I? What do I have to offer as a leader? If you’re not sure where to start on campus, the program provides an excellent first step to your involvement. If you’re already an experienced student leader, this is a great development opportunity to polish and refine your leadership skills and all of the great things you’ve learned along the way. This program involves learning in a small group setting. There are a maximum of 25 students per group, and through 7 hands-on workshops, you’ll work together to learn about your own leadership style and strengths, and develop some key leadership skills. Topics include personality type, leading with authenticity, effective communication, and exploring diversity and inclusivity.
Co-Curricular Recognition is provided to all participants who complete and meet all of the requirements of SLDP-I. Cost: Free for students registered to the Faculty of Agricultural & Food Sciences
