Student Life

Student Life Programs & Services supports graduate and undergraduate students in reaching their academic goals, engages students in their development and learning, and challenges students to construct their own experiences.

We partner across the University to create programs that foster leadership and community involvement, locally and internationally, and support the health and well-being of our students. We help students engage with the broader community through co-curricular and community-based learning opportunities.

We are also increasingly connected globally. We welcome and support our international students and build relationships with universities abroad through our international mobility and research opportunities. 

Our offerings are united by a commitment to helping students flourish academically and in experiences beyond the classroom. We aim to make all our programs and services engaging, accessible and inclusive, respecting and reflecting the diverse needs of the students we serve.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic we quickly transitioned to virtual delivery, with almost all programs and services now offered in-person and online, in both synchronous and asynchronous formats to accommodate students in other time zones. We have seen a significant increase in student participation during this change, with more students both attending sessions and using services. We have also seen an increase in students attending multiple sessions. We continue to scale up our offerings to meet this increased demand.

Our programming has adapted to serve the needs of students during these difficult times, including developing resources for online learning, and programming for dealing with mental and physical health, community building and career uncertainty during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are committed to ensuring that students have access to appropriate supports to complete their studies during these unprecedented times.

In 2021, we launched our new Strategic Plan, which will drive our priorities for the next 5 years. On this site, you can review our Strategic Plan goals and priorities, and follow our progress towards each of these objectives in the Annual report.
