Why A Club?

Why a club?

“The Students’ Associations are recognized by Saskatchewan Polytechnic as the official group representing students on campus. They are responsible for representing the interests of their student members to other stakeholders and the coordination, implementation and delivery of a variety of services and programs to support students.  Groups of students are to form under the policies and guidance of the Students’ Association in accordance with the Agreement.  All on-campus, non-academic activities initiated by students must be coordinated through the Students’ Association to ensure alignment with the Agreement, appropriate Saskatchewan Polytechnic and Students’ Association policies and insurance.  The Students’ Association will not be held accountable for the activities of student groups who operate outside the boundaries of the Students’ Association policies.”  – Saskatchewan Polytechnic and the Students’ Associations Master Partnership Agreement.
