Student Associations

Education Students' Associations (ESA)

The University of Alberta's Education Students' Association is an ATA Student Local, striving to create a community for all students within the Faculty of Education, to provide a voice for all Education students, and to provide services that work towards the academic, professional, and social enhancement of our members.

Students' Union (SU)

The University of Alberta Students' Union is the official body that represents all undergraduate students and acts as a strong advocate for students at the university, and at all levels of government. We operate a variety of businesses intended to appeal to students (from bars and a deli, to a convenience store and a full service print shop), and provide access to a wide range of student services designed to meet the needs of all of our members. We also operate - and own - the Students' Union Building, and run a budget of more than $10 million, with more than 200 staff.

The SU is a student-centric organization that is run by students for students, and prides itself on being a proactive organization that is sensitive to the needs of individuals and the student body as a whole. We are committed to ensuring that your education is affordable and of the highest quality, and that your experience is a very positive one.
