Coffee with a Colleague

The Division of Student Affairs is big. With over 1500 staff in 28 units across four departments, the work of most of our colleagues is a mystery to us. Connections outside of our own team and work units aren't always easy to build but connections help all of us do our work and achieve our shared goals and vision. That's why we've introduced Coffee with a Colleague, a chance to meet up with someone you wouldn't normally see and gain perspectives on work happening across the division. Together, we transform students' lives... so let's get together!

TO PARTICIPATE: sign up for one of the three sessions (summer, fall, and winter) by the deadline provided. Participants in Coffee with a Colleague will then be randomly matched with a colleague from another department in the division. Each participant will receive a voucher for a free tea or coffee from Finnerty Express Cafe at the Bookstore. Matched participants can meet up for coffee (or tea), a walk around the ring, or plan another activity that works for you both. 

Information and deadlines will be shared in the STUA Voice newsletter and on this webpage.

Student Affairs staff recognition program

Have you ever seen one of your Student Affairs colleagues go above and beyond the requirements of their position in order to demonstrate the Students Affairs vision or values? The Student Affairs staff recognition program is designed to recognize and reward exemplary work being done across our units in alignment with our division values.

The program is open to all Student Affairs staff including term, hourly, casual and student staff. Nominations of single individuals or teams of up to two people are accepted. Teams can be from within the same unit or individuals from two different units. If nominating a team, please include both nominees on one form and show how both their individual work and their work together demonstrates the STUA vision and values.

Nominations forms can be submitted by email to  or in person to MWB A244 Attn: Mandy Suen. Submissions will be reviewed by the Newsletter Editorial Board based on the Student Affairs vision and values and winner(s) will be announced in each edition of The STUA Voice.

Winners will receive a STUA GiftCard valued at $20 and will be profiled in The STUA Voice, our monthly staff newsletter. Nominations are always open so next time you see someone do something great, tell us about it and they could be our next monthly winner!
