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.
Confidence Line is a free, third-party confidential service for reporting any concern related to the university. The MacEwan University Confidence Line is available to all members of the university community. If you have experienced or witnessed unwanted, uncomfortable or unethical behaviour, either as an employee or as a student, we encourage you to make a report.
The medical clinic in the Christenson Family Centre for Sport and Wellness provides primary health care to members of the MacEwan University community. Appointments can be booked over the phone.
Peer Support Centre
Peer Support is an initiative of SAMU that offers students a safe and confidential space to discuss life’s stresses and tough situations with a trained listener.
Security Services are available to the MacEwan community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our dedicated security team responds to suspicious activity and to emergency situations, such as a fire, severe weather or threats to personal safety. We support people who are in distress or feel unsafe, students of concern or anyone who experiences or witnesses sexual violence on campus.
The Student Ombudsperson is an independent, neutral, confidential and accessible resource for students at MacEwan University. The ombudsperson will, in a fair and impartial manner, assist you in understanding and clarifying policies, processes and decisions that affect your enrolment.
Wellness and Psychological Services
Wellness and Psychological Services offers free, confidential counselling to MacEwan University students for personal, academic, or professional matters. Any unexpected life challenge can disrupt your studies but you can get help to move ahead in a positive way. Counsellors can provide referrals to resources on campus and in the community.
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.
