Upcoming Webinar

Advocacy Strategies for Student Leaders: Navigating Governance Structures and Moving Ideas into Action


This webinar will focus on the role of student advocacy and student-led initiatives in catalyzing change in the post-secondary environment. Participants will gain insights on how to understand and navigate governance structures, identify and build partnerships, align initiatives with institutional priorities, and develop their ideas into action plans to make an impact on student mental health and wellbeing on their campus. The webinar will consist of a presentation outlining key considerations and strategies, along with case study examples from UBC and an open Q&A discussion among participants. We invite you to share your priorities and questions when you register to enable the presenters to prepare content and select case studies that best fit the needs of participants.
