UASU Got This!

"UASU Got This" Campaign

The University of Alberta Students’ Union (UASU) is launching a campaign to support and encourage traditionally underrepresented students in seeking student leadership positions at the University of Alberta. These positions include University of Alberta Students’ Union Executive, Students’ Council, Faculty and Department Associations, and Residence Associations positions. This campaign will carry the messages of empowerment and positivity to the broader campus community.

Keep an eye out for the You Got This posters on campus featuring leaders and passionate students from all corners of campus, calling on YOU to run in the next UASU election.

These web pages include:

  • Information on the You Got This campaign
  • Access to an extensive research project on diversity and undergraduate student politics that the UASU conducted called Identity Matters!, A Study of Undergraduate Involvement and Leadership in Student Government at UAlberta,
  • More information on some of the leaders featured on the You Got This posters
  • Other important resources
