Academic support

While many instructors will invite their students to come to them for direct advice and help, some students may be more comfortable asking their questions of others. Either way, normalizing help-seeking and the desire to build one's academic skill set is a tremendous opportunity that you have as a teacher. 

Financial support and student awards

Financial Support

Students facing financial difficulty can access several forms of advice and support at the University of Saskatchewan. Emergency loans, government student loans, scholarships and awards, and part-time job opportunities may all be appropriate sources.

Student Awards

Both entering and continuing students may be eligible for college- or department-specific awards. Encourage students to speak with the undergraduate office in their college for more information.

Student leadership development

Do you have a role in student leadership development?

The Student Leadership Community of Practice (SLCoP) advocates for and supports students in their leadership development through roles such as Arts and Science Peer Mentors, PAL Peer Mentors, Peer Health Mentors, Residence Assistants, Notetakers, KinLife Student Leaders, Research Coaches, Student Assistants, Student Advisors, Student Ambassadors as well as others.

The SLCoP community aims to strengthen the connections and communications amoung staff working with student leaders through meeting on a regular basis and working collaboratively to share experiences, create a pool of resources and research and discuss best practices.

Engagement and student life

Being involved in campus life and having positive social networks is often what keeps students committed to their academic goals, even through tough times when they may feel like quitting.
