Sexual Violence Response Coordinator
At MacEwan University, the Sexual Violence Response Coordinator provides a first point of contact if you have experienced or witnessed sexual violence. The coordinator is familiar with support options on campus and in the community. Counselling and emotional support, safety planning, on-campus security, reporting options and academic modifications—the coordinator can help you take next steps.
The medical clinic provides students and employees with primary health care, including immunizations, medical exams, mental health consultations, allergy shots and specialist referrals. Appointments can be booked by phone or in-person.
Peer Support Centre
Peer Support, an initiative of the Student Association of MacEwan University, is about students helping students. If you need a safe and confidential space to discuss life’s stresses and tough situations, we have trained listeners waiting to meet with you.
Our team responds to a range of situations: lost and found items, suspicious activity, potentially dangerous conditions and emergencies, such as fire, extreme weather or threats to personal safety. We can help if you are in distress, feel unsafe, are worried about a student or have experienced or witnessed violence on campus.
Wellness and Psychological Services
If you are struggling with personal or academic stress and need someone to talk to, we can support you with free, professional, confidential counselling. Students enrolled in one or more credit courses can meet to discuss health and wellness concerns. Initiate a meeting by attending an Initial Consultation (IC).
Sexual violence support guides
MacEwan staff and faculty who have taken sexual violence prevention and support training are available to assist survivors of sexual violence. Our support guides are knowledgeable about MacEwan's sexual violence policy and procedures, connected to campus and community resources and committed to creating a culture of consent on our campus.
