About Students’ Council:

The Students’ Council is the highest governing body of the Students’ Association of MacEwan University (SAMU) and consists of 14 elected members of the student body. SAMU runs a number of services, organizes student events like Fall Fest and the Speaker Series and lobbies on behalf of MacEwan students. Students’ Council approves bylaws and writes the policies that govern the activities of SAMU, they also ensure expectations have been met.

Essentially, the Students’ Council speaks on behalf of MacEwan students, and helps to make sure your concerns are being addressed and that your university experience is the best it can be. So get involved! And have your voice heard at the highest level of SAMU.

About Executive Committee:

The Executive Committee consists of five student executives who work to help SAMU achieve its goals, ensure the success of the organization’s projects and advocate on behalf of MacEwan Students. They develop and implement their own initiatives, which are inspired by you and aimed at making changes both on, and off, campus. Executives are elected in the winter semester of each year and work full-time with SAMU for the duration of their terms. Each member of the Executive must advise the Executive Committee and Students’ Council on their particular portfolio.

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.

Stress is a common and normal issue for a student to experience. It can be the result of any number of problems.

Signs of stress can be physical, emotional, or behavioural. Some common symptoms of feeling stressed include:

Sleep problems
Irritability
Headaches
Anxiety
Indecisiveness
Stress is the result of an imbalance between demands and coping strategies. When the demands placed on us are greater than our ability to cope with them, we experience stress.

The key to handling stress is to regain balance by increasing our coping strategies to deal with the demands. When we look at coping, we want to be doing things that are both external and internal. It is essential to develop a strong social system, break up your routine, take care of your body, and ask for help when needed.

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.
