Biopsychology Student Association (BSA)

Year: 2016/17
Status: Recognized
Contact(s): Brittany Cook

Email: cook-b76@webmail.uwinnipeg.ca

The purpose of the Biopsychology Students Association (BSA) is to provide Biopsychology students with the ability to connect with their peers and faculty in both a social and academic setting to promote communication and support during the undergraduate program.

Biopsychology students are a unique student body who have different needs compared to Biology or psychology students and often face conflicts between the two departments.

We believe it is important that Biopsychology students get to know more individuals within the faculty and share experiences and challenges they have faced working through the degree. In order to strengthen community within the faculty fun activities such as bowling and sports event participation are to be planned. In addition to social experiences students who are apart of BSA will meet to discuss issues of the degree and draw attention to things students need/purpose for the faculty such as specialized courses like brain anatomy and the level of difficulty and intensity that comes with the degree requirements.

 

Meetings:

An annual meeting will occur in September as a kick-off for the group and to determine the goals and wants of the BSA for the school year. Depending on the goals and needs will determine future meetings for the BSA. For the 2016-2017 year, we expect to have minimum of 4 meetings over the year, probably once every month to two months.

Cultivate Winnipeg (CUW)

Year: 2016/17
Status: Recognized
Contact(s): Matthew Nguyen

Email: cuwinnipeg@gmail.com

As a recipient of the 2015-2016 Eco-Grant from the Geography and Environmental Studies/Sciences Association (GESA), Cultivate UWinnipeg (CUW) was built on the core idea of addressing food security among students at the University of Winnipeg. By “garnishing” vacant campus patios with gardens, CUW aims to provide an outlet for produce that is local, organic, and affordable for the campus community. The issues regarding food security at the University of Winnipeg, where students face challenges acquiring fresh fruits and vegetables, are well known in recent years. This may be due to many reasons including the absence of downtown grocery stores, increasing produce costs, and a surging reliance on local food banks. The patio gardens at the main campus building provide a centralized location that looks to rejuvenate a culture of food self-sufficiency at the University. Over the course of the growing season, CUW will sell their harvest to members of the campus community at a fraction of market value.

As a student group, we shall promote awareness surrounding the issue of fossil fuel damage to our environment, enlighten on the issue of fossil fuel divestment, and campaign through peaceful, positive, direct action in order to achieve full divestment. All students on campus will benefit from the work of Divest UW as we create further transparency on the investments of our University of Winnipeg Foundation and work to build more sustainable investments, and ultimately, sustainable futures for all.

Email: nicoleambergomes@gmail.com

Manitoba S.W.A.T. (Students Working Against Tobacco) is recognized as part of Manitoba’s provincial tobacco control strategy. The group focuses on preventing youth from starting to use tobacco products, as well as protecting non-smokers from exposure to second-hand smoke, and largely denormalizing tobacco use. There are many SWAT teams across the province in high schools, and University of Winnipeg is currently the only post secondary with a SWAT team. S.W.A.T. students are actively involved in reducing tobacco use in their schools and communities. This grassroots student-led program educates young people about the health risks associated with tobacco use.  It is an interactive and highly effective model, which stresses student voice and engagement and is based on a “train the trainer model” with students presenting to students. This approach is based on one of the cornerstones of tobacco control, which is prevention and education.

The main purpose of the Rhetoric Students Association will be to help students connect with other students who are studying or taking courses offered through the Rhetoric department. We hope to encourage a positive student life experience by offering student group gatherings and by volunteering and promoting student-driven events throughout the department. By having a student group, students are encouraged to take full advantage of being a University of Winnipeg student. Overwhelmed with diversification, we often forget what we share in common. As a result, peers communicate with each other less; fewer relationships are formed; and our community becomes fragmented. This is not a good thing. This group means to correct this. We will serve as a line of communication for all students within our department. We will create understanding, mutual value, coherence and, most importantly, community.

We successfully raise money as a group by running events and collecting donations use that money to fund GoFundMe pages for families that deal with tragedies and future events.

Our long-term goal is for us to become a group of experiencd mentors for youths in the community and future students. Mentors who can easily be reached out to. However, with the help and expertise of student groups here in Manitoba and the other SSAs across North America, we can hopefully achieve our goals one event at a time!

We are Non-Profit. The food we bring to events we hold will attract many people.

Teach for Canada (T4C)

Status: Affiliated
Contact(s): Trina Everall

Email: everall-t@hotmail.com

Teach For Canada is a non-profit organization that works with Indigenous communities in northern Canada to recruit, prepare, and support committed teachers.Education in Canada is a success story, but high overall quality masks deep inequality. On First Nations reserves, 3 in 5 students do not complete high school. Too often, teachers arrive in remote and Indigenous communities without the preparation and support they need to succeed—and stay—in the classroom. The twin challenges of teacher supply and turnover compound historical injustice and systemic inequities to produce an education gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities. The right teacher can help fill this gap.We work with education directors, principals, teachers, and students in Indigenous communities to develop readiness criteria, summer enrichment, and a support system for teachers. Inspired by the leadership of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action on Education, Teach For Canada teachers emphasize a spirit of reciprocal learning with communities during their 2+ year teaching commitment. Teach For Canada’s University of Winnipeg Student Group will promote awareness events and recruitment campaigns to inform others of the inequality in Canadian education. As Canadian’s we are giving and supportive of causes around the globe. However, we are neglecting the people and communities in our own backyard. By working with communities to recruit, prepare, and retain committed teachers, we join the on-going process of reconciliation. Together, we can make education more equal.

Do you want to get involved this school year? Do you want to meet new students with similar interests that have both “Been there” and “Done that?”

In hopes of maintaining a strong community of students within the Math and Stats departments, The U of W Mathematics & Statistics Student Association (UWMSSA) provides an opportunity for UWinnipeg students to interact with both their professors and peers in a fun, laid back environment. We welcome anyone who is either majoring, minoring, or just generally interested in mathematics or statistics. We provide problem solving workshops, seminars, pub-nights, and much more!
