Make new friends, connect with like-minded people, build your resumé, make a difference on campus or in the community—when you volunteer, your world gets a little bit bigger.

Doors open for volunteers. So, take that first step. Choose an event you want to support or a group on campus that shares your passion, and offer to lend a hand.

Volunteers are an important part of MacEwan University's convocation ceremonies every June and November. While graduates excitedly don caps and gowns and proudly receive their degree, diploma or certificate in front of classmates and loved ones, volunteers ensure the day runs smoothly. You can lend a hand by greeting guests, assisting with gowning and guiding graduates through each moment of the ceremony.



MacEwan Ambassadors promote a positive image of MacEwan University. If you enjoy meeting people, want to develop your leadership and communication skills and like the idea of making a difference in the lives of MacEwan students, contact us to learn more about the Ambassador program.


MacEwan International offers students various opportunities to gain valuable volunteer experience. Please contact to learn more about our current openings.

Volunteer for two to three hours a week and receive exclusive access to workshops on art handling, installation and care. In addition, our volunteers get in-depth training about the contemporary artworks in the exhibition. 


Each fall and winter, student volunteers lead tours, greet new students, serve as mascots or mascot assistants, share their own first-year stories and much more. Contact the Welcome Team if you would like to support new students as they start their post-secondary journey. 


If you are interested in working on initiatives that help promote diversity and inclusion on campus, we'd like to hear from you. Organizing awareness events, supporting campus and community outreach projects, participating in campus presentations and peer dialogue sessions—when you volunteer with the Office of Human Rights, Equity and Inclusion, you develop valuable professional and personal skills. We also offer training programs to support students who want to take their volunteer skills to the next level.


Help build a culture of consent at MacEwan University. Receive training, join committees and share your experience as we work together to raise awareness about and address sexual violence on campus. Some opportunities include MacEwan Anti-Violence Education Network (MAVEN) and the Ending Sexual Violence Student Research Forum. See what we have to offer.


Volunteer at this once-a-year gig and be reminded why MacEwan University is such a great place to be.

During Open House, thousands of potential students and their families learn about MacEwan programs, meet with faculty members and explore City Centre Campus. As an Open House volunteer, you meet future students, share your experiences and provide direction to our excited—and sometimes overwhelmed—guests. A variety of positions are available.

Volunteer sign-up typically opens at the beginning of October, about a month in advance of Open House.

Student experience record

The student experience record (SER) is an official MacEwan document that recognizes the extracurricular activities you participated in as a MacEwan student. Bring the SER to a job interview or attach it to an application. It will boost your resumé and CV and let potential employers know a bit more about you. Learn more about this university-recognized, accredited document in the SER portal of MacEwanLife.


I’ve made great connections with other students who volunteer. We feel like we’re contributing to MacEwan, to our city and to our own academic and social growth.
