The MSA office is now open with rotating staff coverage. We accept only one additional person in the office at a time, therefore we recommend booking an appointment in advance. Masks are required for anyone entering the office. Staff not in the office continue to work remotely. We’re available Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. You can contact us at 780.497.5697
On behalf of the MSA Board and staff, I would like to offer a warm welcome to Dr. Annette Trimbee, MacEwan University’s newest president and vice-chancellor. Dr. Trimbee has a wealth of experience in post-secondary and government, and we believe this is an opportunity, not only for stability during this tumultuous time, but for growth and rebuilding. We very much look forward to working with Dr. Trimbee
