Rally For Students – Feb 27

USSU Women In Leadership

The University of Saskatchewan Students’ Union is hosting the fourth annual Women In Leadership on March 3rd and 4th, 2020, at Louis’ Loft. Women In Leadership is dedicated to the celebration of our achievements and accomplishments while encouraging students at the U of S to engage in leadership activities. This year the theme for Women In Leadership Panel is “Breaking the Mould,” with the goal of showcasing women in non-traditional leadership roles.

This event will celebrate female leadership in a variety of professions, industries, studies, disciplines, and backgrounds. We would like to focus on the achievements that women have made in their fields while highlighting the challenges they have overcome in leadership positions and discuss the solutions that may help other women take action to the current problems that we know exist.

This event is free, for more information visit our Facebook Event

USSU Teaching Excellence Awards

The USSU Teaching Excellence Awards recognizes Professors and Teaching Assistants who demonstrate teaching excellence at the University of Saskatchewan. An excellent teacher not only gives us access to knowledge but also gives us the tools with which to turn that knowledge into wisdom. Students evaluate teachers and their environment in a number of ways; three important areas include enthusiasm, organization, and fairness of evaluation.

Do you have a Professor or Teaching Assistant that inspires you? Is your instructor passionate about teaching? Do they go that extra mile to ensure you succeed?

Nominate them for a Teaching Excellence Award!

Nominations are open until 4:30 on February 14, 2020.
