We’re looking for 12 students to help us enhance the student experience at Sheridan!
Become a Student Life Advocate and help us shape the #SheridanLife.

As a student led non-profit organization, we are governed by a Board of Directors: an elected group of 12 Student Life Advocates. These students are voted in by their peers (that’s you!) every year and they help guide and manage the Student Union’s strategic vision.

They work with you to represent student interests, needs, and ideas within the SSU and at the college level. They attend events, like Orientation and Convocation; joining campus clubs; and seeking student feedback to enhance and shape your #SheridanLife.

  • Advocate for a better student life , services and resources on behalf of over 25,000 Sheridan students and oversee the SSU President.

  • Review and evaluate current and future opportunities to enhance the student experience, ensuring the voices of all students are heard and represented within in Sheridan College and SSU activities.
