Take the Student Mental Health Survey
Hello RDC Students!
Please take a few minutes to fill out an important survey related to mental health. It can be found at www.surveymonkey.com/s/ACMHIsurvey or on the Personal Announcement section on The Loop.
To address the growing need for mental health support, the Alberta Campus Mental Health Innovation (ACMHI) fund has been created to support student-led solutions to mental health awareness and services. Your Students’ Association was the recipient of these funds and is working diligently to help transform mental health on Alberta Campuses.
For more information, or if you would like to get involved by joining the student Mental Health Committee, please contact your Students’ Association at 403-342-3200 or by email.
WATCH FOR THE MENTAL HEALTH BEE FLYING AROUND CAMPUS!
There are still spots available on the Students' Association Council - the governing body of the Students' Association. All major decisions are made by this Council. Councilors represent students and have the responsibility to advocate on behalf of the student body.
Anyone interested in this opportunity, please send email Vice President Operations Rebecca Tootoosis. We will be taking applications until Wednesday, Oct.1 at noon.
Representation on the Provincial Stage
Did you know that your Students’ Association at Red Deer College is part of the Alberta Students’ Executive Council (ASEC)?
ASEC is Alberta’s largest post-secondary provincial advocacy organization by representing the interests of over 175,000 students from 15 post-secondary institutions across Alberta. ASEC is a member-driven, non-partisan advocacy group that unites student voices from all over Alberta and brings their ideas to the provincial government. Your Students’ Association (SA) here at Red Deer College has taken a strong leadership role within ASEC and look forward to continuing to advocate for student interests in 2014/2015.
- Your Students’ Association President Bailey Daines is one of the five executives for ASEC. She is the Director of Policy whose main role is to draft the advocacy documents that will be presented to the government.
- Your Vice President Operations Rebecca Tootoosis sits on ASEC’s Finance Committee and Governance Committee.
- Your Vice President College Affairs Evan Lintick sits on ASEC’s Policy Committee and Marketing and Communications Committee.
- And your Vice President Student Life Jhymylyn Miranda sits on the Mental Health Committee. This committee was formed last year after ASEC successfully lobbied for student-led mental health initiatives across Alberta’s post-secondary institutions.
The student voice is very powerful. If you are interested to hear more about the Alberta Student Executive Council, feel free come upstairs to the Students’ Association office on campus to talk with any of your SA executives. Or check out ASEC’s website at www.albertastudents.ca
