Where involvement begins.

Our Staff

Josh Connauton, Program Lead :: josh.connauton@su.ualberta.ca alt text Pronouns: he/him/his

Josh Connauton is extremely excited to be entering his third year in the role of Program Lead for Student Group Services. He graduated in 2014 from the UofA with a BA Double Major in History and Anthropology. He recently finished year one of a MEd in Adult, Community, and Higher Education also here at the UofA. One of Josh's favourite parts of the University of Alberta is the warm and welcoming sense of community among students, staff, and faculty members - in fact, this sense of community is what has kept Josh around campus after graduating. Things that bring him joy in life are the Montreal Canadiens, Toyko Police Club, and Sandwiches. Josh brings a wonderful energy to Student Group Services and is excitedly anticipating great things to come in 2017-2018.

Kristin LaGrange, Assistant Program Lead :: kristin.lagrange@su.ualberta.ca alt text Pronouns: she/her/hers

Kristin LaGrange is the Assistant Program Lead. She started in the role in September 2015 after completing her Bachelor of Arts in English (major) and Creative Writing (minor). She loved being involved with many student groups during undergrad, including a choir, a fraternity, and a faculty association, so she feels perfectly at home with Student Group Services. She also worked at the Centre for Writers on campus, so she's no stranger to helping students both in groups and one-on-one. Come ask any of your harder questions about student group registration, recruitment, and other programming ideas if you've got 'em!

Need something? Come ask us!

With so many student groups to help oversee, we understand that from time to time you'll have questions that aren't answered anywhere in writing -- even in our expansive categorized FAQ! For those times when you need an extra helping hand or listening ear, book an appointment to see us!

If you have a question about the Student Group Granting Program, please book an appointment with Josh.

If you need to talk about your Registration application, or matters around the SUB student group office/storage space, please book an appointment with Kristin.

For any other student group topics not listed above, feel free to book with either one of us, and we'll be happy to help you.
