Student Team

Students are at the forefront of everything we do at the Student Success Centre. We wouldn’t be able to provide all the services and support we do without an incredible student team of student staff and peer leaders. So we’re excited to introduce you to the students who help us make things happen — you might even notice a few familiar faces and names.

Student staff at the SSC are paid student employees who help support various programs, services, events and more across the department. Student staff come from a variety of Faculties, programs and year levels.

Want to join the team?

We’d love to work with you. Check OSCARplus > Student Success Centre > Employment > Job Postings. Then, filter by “Student Success Centre” to view our current opportunities. We add postings throughout the year, so check back if there aren’t any postings right now.

The peer leaders team consists of student volunteers — in various Faculties and year levels — who work closely with different areas in the SSC.
