Welcome to the University of Alberta’s Education Students’ Association!

We begin by respectfully acknowledging that the land on which we gather is Treaty 6 territory. We are grateful to be on Cree, Dene, Saulteaux, Métis, Blackfoot, and Nakota Sioux territory; specifically the ancestral space of the Papaschase Cree. These Nations are our family, friends, faculty, staff, students, and peers. As members of the University of Alberta Education Students’ Association we honour the nation-to-nation treaty relationship. We aspire for our learning, research, teaching, and governance to acknowledge and work towards the decolonization of Indigenous knowledge and traditions.

The University of Alberta’s Education Students’ Association is an ATA Student Local that strives to create a sense of community by offering services that enhance academic, professional, and social experiences for students within the Faculty of Education here at the UofA.

The ESA strives to connect education students to multiple resources, provide them with opportunities to expand their academic experience by offering workshops and PD session resources, and aim to unite fellow education students by hosting and participating in a variety of awesome social and athletic events!

FURCA 2020 – Opportunity to present undergraduate research & creative projects

We are organizing the Festival of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities (FURCA), which will take place on March 9-13, 2020. The purpose of FURCA is to showcase the research and creative achievements by students across all disciplines.
The abstract submission form is available here and the deadline to submit is January 24, 2020. Students will have the option to present their work in various formats, including posters, oral presentations, performances, or creative exhibits.

Please also consider submitting their work to Spectrum, URI’s interdisciplinary undergraduate research journal.
