Student Engagement inspires students to shape their campus experience.

We empower students to unite with others within the college community through initiatives that foster college pride and create a welcoming, respectful and inclusive Conestoga College culture.

We connect students with meaningful opportunities to enhance their classroom experience, apply their learning, explore their potential, develop personally and professionally, and shape a holistic student experience. 

We engage students in learning-centred campus experience where opportunities for personal and leadership development are realized, where student accomplishments are celebrated, and where partnerships among students, the student association, faculty, staff and administration are cultivated.

Conestoga College will be sought out for its dynamic student engagement experience. Student Engagement will continually strive to build collaborative partnerships that provide intentional student engagement opportunities which contribute to our culture of experiential learning, as well as student and graduate success.

  • We celebrate each individual's unique gifts.
  • We recognize the ability of all students to grow, develop and strive for their highest potential, both personally and professionally.
  • We value a campus culture that is positive, respectful and inclusive.
  • We believe in the strength of our students and our college employees and value the contributions of each towards creating a student life experience that is dynamic and responsive, as well as respectful and inclusive.
