What We Do

Amplify student voices on Faculty matters

Connect with other student leaders in LA&PS

Engage with professionals in the field during panel discussions

Host student events and workshops

The primary goal of SCOLAPS this 2021-22 academic year is to provide support for students in the faculty despite operating in the virtual world. However, we are hopeful in coming back and hosting in-person events. By fostering cooperation between the four LA&PS colleges, clubs and departments, there will be increased awareness of students' issues and concerns at all levels of the school where key discussions and decisions take place. In effect, the appropriate resources and opportunities will be provided to address the continuous growing needs of students to ensure our success.
