President’s Message: Already thinking about next semester? So are we! 150 150 admin

Hello UCalgary,

We don’t always send an email this late in the semester, but if you have some time on your hands, we have a few opportunities you might want to check out for the new year.

Volunteer on Campus

SU Volunteer Services is recruiting. We are looking for volunteers for the SU Campus Food Bank, Students for Literacy, and the Volunteer Tax Program. Visit our volunteer programs page to learn more.

Join the Teaching Excellence Awards Committee

For nearly 40 years, the SU has invited students to nominate their UCalgary teachers for an SU Teaching Excellence Award. The awards committee works to promote the nominations in fall and winter semesters, and conducts class visits to observe nominated teachers before selecting the winners and planning an awards ceremony in April. The total time commitment for each committee member is around 15 hours. Learn more on the committees page on the SU website.

Work with US

We are hiring Deputy Returning Officers (DROs) to help run the SU General Election and Referendum. DROs must be available to work shifts from Jan. 22 – Mar. 8. Apply by Jan. 3 on the SU website.

Run in the SU General Election

Speaking of the election, have you ever thought about taking on a leadership role at the SU? Official nomination packages will be available Jan. 29, but in the meantime, we’re regularly updating our election webpages with important information and deadlines. If you have questions about life as an SU elected official or campaigning, we are also hosting pre-election workshops Jan. 31 and Feb. 1. Watch our social media channels for updates.

Join a Club

Clubs Week returns Jan. 15 – 17 in the Mac Hall North and South Courtyards.

Apply for an award or scholarship

Club Awards nominations open Jan. 9, with categories like sustainability, innovation, and engagement. Mark your calendar and nominate your amazing club.

We are accepting applications for the SU Pride Scholarship, which is a Quality Money initiative dedicated to recognizing UCalgary students who have contributed to the betterment of the queer community. Apply by Feb. 1.

Enjoy your well-deserved break,

Shaziah Jinnah Morsette
Your Students’ Union President
