Student Opportunities

There are many ways for students to get involved at the U of A beyond the classroom. From personal development to volunteering, opportunities exist to enhance the university experience. Here are just a few of the options on campus:

Community Helpers Program
Funded by Alberta Health Services, the Community Helpers program seeks to identify leaders within the campus community and provide them with the tools needed to help other community members in distress. Participation within the training program will be recognized on the co-curricular record, and provide access to other training and leadership opportunities.

Emerging Leaders Program
Through interactive sessions from September to March, participants will develop their understanding of leadership through exploring topics such as citizenship, collaboration, self-awareness, and commitment.

Green and Gold Student Leadership and Professional Development Grant
The purpose of the Green and Gold Grant is to help U of A students become leaders in their profession following graduation.

Student Engagement Granting Program
The program offers grants to students and student groups wishing to participate in activities that will enhance their University experience.

Volunteering is a great way to get involved, develop new skills and enhance your resume. There are many volunteer opportunities on campus. To find out more about volunteering, check out the SU volunteer registry.
