Getting Involved

Health Sciences Students' Association

The Health Sciences Students’ Association (HSSA) is a student-run association made up of first- and upper-year Health Sciences students committed to advocating for the Health Sciences and Laurier communities.

As a council, HSSA strives to provide the Health Sciences student body with diverse academic and social programming to enhance the student university experience. HSSA also strives to engage Laurier students in community service by providing opportunities to get involved in club organized fundraisers and service projects through the new charitable initiative- HSSA Cares.

HSSA is also very involved in academics at Laurier and plays a vital role in enhancing the experience of students by recommending changes to improve the Health Sciences program, providing academic help sessions for difficult courses, and by providing a voice for students when discussing issues relevant to the Health Sciences program.

Finally, HSSA provides Laurier students with opportunities for professional development and networking by collaborating with other campus clubs to organize events featuring club-sponsored speakers, alumni visits and outreach help.
