At Université Sainte-Anne, students are at the heart of our mission and actions. By providing experiential learning opportunities, we help them succeed and encourage their linguistic, academic, social, and professional development. For students who want to get involved in research and fieldwork, Sainte-Anne offers them numerous opportunities to make their mark!

Students Involved on the Ground

Whether on campus or in the community, ENACTUS Sainte-Anne students engage in numerous actions to promote ecological practices: organization of a green conference in collaboration with the municipality; clean-up of the campus and the shore; creation and distribution of a green guide on ways to reduce energy consumption; collaboration with the waste management service to improve waste sorting in the residences… Our students are committed to sustainable development, and it shows!

« Durant mon parcours scolaire, j'ai participé aux activités organisées par Enactus Sainte-Anne et j'encouragerais tous les étudiants à faire partie de l'équipe. C'est une expérience unique qui permet de réaliser des projets qui font une différence dans la communauté. J'ai eu l'opportunité de faire du bénévolat avec des personnes qui m'ont beaucoup inspirée. Mon équipe et moi avons voyagé à Halifax et à Toronto afin de présenter nos projets. »

An Ecological Approach in the Classroom

Supervised by their professor, science student volunteers participate in habitat creation programs to preserve certain endangered species. The students have built and installed several nesting boxes for swallows and black ducks at different locations on campus. They also monitor the birds in the summer.

In September 2012, a new national shorebird observation program was implemented. The marine ecology students count the species in question every 7 days, and the results go in a national database.

« Sainte-Anne offre une expérience incomparable. C'est un environnement spécial où l'on connait tout le monde et où les gens s'entre-aident non seulement dans les études mais dans tous les aspects de la vie étudiante. »

Working as a Team With a Common Goal

Working with microfilm, conducting interviews for a documentary, or organizing conferences with well-known personalities… these are examples of projects in which research assistants have been involved. In other words, they work as a team on research or other projects, for example, under the supervision of one of our two Canada Research Chairs or the director of the Centre acadien. In addition, they have the chance to meet well-known personalities like Barry Ancelet, Joseph Yvon Thériault, and Phil Comeau. For those who have an inclination for research, opportunities abound!

« En tant qu’assistante de recherche avec la CRÉAcT, je suis en train de développer des compétences en recherche, en plus de travailler en équipe autour d’un but commun. De plus, les ateliers et les conférences auxquelles je participe renforcent mon développement personnel. »
