LGBT Resources

At Saitsa, we live to serve a mission: to improve the student experience at every opportunity through school spirit, student support and advocacy. We at Saitsa aim to foster a community where all students are inspired to learn, lead and to be exceptional. The LGBTQIA2S community is one that has been growing on campus and we are absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to serve such a diverse group. Some resources that students in the LBGTQIA2S community might find helpful include:

Accessibility Resources

Saitsa is committed to representing the needs of all of our members. This includes those who require additional support to help them achieve success. We know that navigating the many resources available on campus can be difficult at times. We’ve collected a list of on campus resources for students with accessibility needs here.

Mature Students

Saitsa understands that mature students have unique needs for support. Mature students often need to balance school with work, family and other demands. Saitsa strives to offer services that can help ease some of these demands.

International Students

Saitsa and SAIT are committed to supporting international students as they grow here at SAIT and contribute invaluable talents and skills to our community. Among the many concerns of international students are affordability and navigating new environments. Some of the resources that international students might find helpful at SAIT include:

Indigenous Students

Saitsa is committed to supporting all students that come to SAIT further their educational pursuits. We offer opportunities to get involved, be supported and support others. The student experience is our number one concern. There are a number of resources on campus that can help Indigenous students thrive while at SAIT.
