Student Support

NOTICE: Saitsa is happy to announce that SAIT now has an “Office of the Ombudsperson” to help students navigate academic and non-academic challenges, allegations, hearings and appeals!

Though Saitsa will continue to support students, if you are encountering a challenge in your education or personal life and would like some support in navigating you options and SAIT’s policies and procedures, Saitsa encourages students to book an appointment with the Ombudsperson, Kamini Bernard.

Saitsa has been advocating for many years for an Ombudsperson at SAIT as Ombuds are an excellent resource for students. Just like Saitsa, the Ombuds will listen to your concerns, talk to you about the options available, help you navigate SAIT’s rules and processes, and connect you to resources you may not be aware of. The Ombuds receives guidance and support from the Ombudsperson Leadership Committee, on which Saitsa has two seats. 

Should you still wish to obtain the support of a Saitsa representative, we would be happy to assist. Please email and request a meeting for support. It is important to note that Saitsa works Monday through Friday and maintains regular business hours of 8:00 am – 4:00 pm; meeting requests made outside business hours or without a minimum of 24 hours notice might not be accommodated.
