Student Engagement Event 

As many of you will know, students and recent alumni up until now have connected via teleconferences, email and at mulit-stakeholder events like the Healthy Minds/Healthy Campuses Summits. We are very excited to announce that this fall will be the first time that BC students and recent alumni will come together and focus on group-identified priorities, including defining the Student Leaders & Recent Alumni group purpose and structure.

Bringing together students and recent alumni from across BC offers a significant opportunity for sharing ideas and building momentum for student-led action on individual campuses and provincially. 
What do we mean by action?  Events, campaigns, groups, initiatives, research, advocacy, etc. 
About what? From raising awareness about mental health to increasing support to changing policies, practices, programs and environments that impact student wellbeing, learning and success. 

If you know a student who may be interested in getting involved with the Student Leaders and Recent Alumni group or participate in this cross-province event, please follow this link to forward the information to students.
