SAMU Committees

Sitting on a SAMU or university committee is a fantastic experience with tons of personal and professional benefits. If you are thinking of having a career in politics, arts, business, or science you should consider sitting on a committee. 

Throughout the academic year, dozens of opportunities open up for students to sit on committees and help guide our institution and our students’ association, making lives a little easier for students.

By sitting on a committee you’ll have the opportunity to 

  • Gain leadership experience 
  • Refine your communication skills
  • Work and strengthen your soft skills (the skills employers look for!) 
  • Make a lasting impact on MacEwan
  • Bolster your resume and outshine your future competition 
  • Network with the university staff and administration 

We are currently accepting applications for all SAMU Committees. Except for the Student Voice On Violence Elimination Sub-Committee, appointment terms end October 31, 2022.

SAMU Programs aim to provide students with activities and opportunities to learn about wellbeing, as well as raising awareness about various resources available to students, both in and outside the MacEwan community.

Our mission is to provide ongoing and one-off programming with the direct aim to improve the long-term wellbeing of MacEwan students and their community.

SAMU Programs consist of the Student Refugee Program (SRP), StressLess, Sustainability, SAMU Cares, and Artworks. SAMU Programs also runs a variety of other programming and interactive campaigns, blog posts, hands out wellness bags, and organizes activities that fall under two umbrellas of focus – Wellbeing and Community.

Please note, all SAMU programming is subject to change as we respond to updates and guidelines for COVID-19.

Student Refugee Program

Each term, $2.50 of your student fees goes towards supporting SAMU’s Student Refugee Program (SRP). Working with World University Service of Canada (WUSC), SRP funds the tuition and housing of a refugee student for four years. With the help of a local committee group made up of students and staff, SAMU ensures all the sponsored student’s needs are met throughout their time at MacEwan.
