Student Experience

Our Mission

In Student Experience we cultivate dynamic environments outside the classroom for all students in which they can learn, build community, develop a sense of belonging, explore lived experiences and intersecting identities, deepen their understanding of themselves and each other, and engage in meaningful dialogue.

These environments are created to support students as they work to achieve their goals while navigating experiences of change, transition, development, and learning from the time before they arrive on campus to the time they leave. These environments include programming, community building, skill building, special events, individual and group advising, and leadership development experiences.

We cultivate these environments to provide a safer student experience and hold space where students are seen, supported, and can be successful.

Land Acknowledgement

With great respect, Student Experience acknowledges that the University of Guelph resides on the traditional lands of the Hodinöhsö:ni' and Anishinaabe and the treaty lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit. We uphold the significance of the Dish with One Spoon Covenant and the continuing relationship our Indigenous neighbours have with this land. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our relationships to this land where we learn and work
