Our organization

Advocating for student success

Our not-for-profit organization exists to support our members, the students of Assiniboine Community College.

A separate organization  from the college, we’re made up of the Students’ Association Council and a team of professional staff.

Together, we work to be the voice of the students;

  • hosting meetings for council members to come together and discuss student needs
  • ensuring student representation on college committees
  • providing support for student clubs
  • providing support for student appeals
  • and offering an array of services for students such as insurance coverage, transit discounts, and more.
