Our Mandate

  • We welcome new undergraduate and graduate students in the Fall and Winter Terms at Fort Garry and Bannatyne campuses through various new student transition programs.
  • We connect students to other students, to supports and services and to the institution.
  • We engage students in high quality service-learning, student leadership, peer mentorship and volunteer experiences on campus, in the community and aboard.
  • We celebrate students for their achievements and contributions through the Co-curricular Record, the Emerging Leader Award and the Emerging Leaders Dinner and the President’s Scholars Society.
