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.

    Keep our herd safe and healthy. Wear a mask indoors and stay home when sick – there are supports to help.

    Mask up to help protect our community

    Masks are required in all indoor spaces until further notice: KN95 strongly recommended, but 3-ply medical ASTM Grade 2 are also acceptable. Students can pick up masks at any UM Library or the UMSU Service Centre.

    Read more about our masking guidelines.

    Sick? Don’t roam, stay home

    If you are feeling sick, please stay home. Students should advise their instructors to make arrangements for your absence. Resources are available if you need additional support.
