Student Affairs

Student Affairs staff are change-makers. We influence change that has a direct and transformative impact on students, campus culture, and the learning environment. We hold a special obligation to ensure that barriers to engagement in academic and campus life are identified, addressed, and dismantled. 

Our focus is students.  We recognize that there is not one homogenous student experience. The work that we do is informed by, honours and reflects the diversity of our learners, the intersection of their identities, and their lived experiences. We are fiercely committed to facilitating personalized learning experiences so that students can optimize their time here.

And we measure our success. Through regular assessment we demonstrate the impact that we make, calibrate our approaches to best address student needs, remain attuned to the changing expectations of the students we serve, and strive to maintain our position as leaders in Student Affairs practice and in our respective areas of expertise.

    Mask up to help protect our community

    As of May 1, 2023, the University of Manitoba’s mandatory masking protocol will come to an end.  Masking will be strongly encouraged and UM will continue to supply masks as the university still recommends people use them.
