ECOLOGY. EDUCATION. EMPOWERMENT

Ecology; the study of the relationships between living organisms, humans, and their physical environment. Ecology is the branch of knowledge. (Definition could help break it down for students)

How can you start your ECO Journey?

Take the SAMU Pledge: 

I will strive to RESIST against our climates impacts

I aim to EDUCATE myself and peers about ecological practices

I am EMPOWERED in my self-efficacy, and sustain environmental resilience in my daily practice

Our pledge to Sustain Resiliency

Here at SAMU, our ECO Program aims to help create a healthy campus culture that educates, motivates, and empowers students to create community and sustain positive change personally, locally, and globally.

We are shifting our environmental programming focus to support and implement effective practices that foster more ecological awareness and education.

By introducing an Environmental Justice Tool Kit, SAMU will bring focus to the spaces we inhabit here on Amiskwacîwâskahikan Treaty 6 land. This tool kit aims to provide fundamental guidelines for tangible, pragmatic, and realistic environmental goals.

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.
