Sociology Students’ Association (President: Emily Chan)
We are a student organization comprised of dedicated student leaders. Our goal is to enrich the experiences of students of Sociology and UBC students beyond our department by providing information, events, and opportunities for community engagement. Please note that we do not in any form represent the administration of the University of British Columbia or the Department of Sociology, although we do work with these divisions to achieve our goals. The mission of the Sociology Student Association can be summed in the following three words: building, empowering, and connecting. Building community means more than hosting a BBQ at the start and end of each term. The SSA envisions an environment on campus where undergraduate, graduate students and faculty regularly participate in social and academic events and strengthening relationships within Sociology and with other departments. The SSA aims to provide a platform where interdepartmental interactions will become the norm. Empowering students happens when students have the ability to freely make their own choices, ask questions, and raise their own voices. The SSA envisions a student society where all students regardless of seniority can ask questions and receive answers about the discipline, the department, the program, or anything else they may be curious to know about (including the very common question of  what can I do with a Sociology degree? ). We also believe that creating spaces to discuss current social issues is a form of empowerment. Connecting with the faculty and discipline means making each of these more accessible to students. This will be reflected in the style of events the SSA will hold in the future. Information sessions on careers options, graduate schools and admissions, the honours program, and undergraduate and graduate research will be integral for bringing the vision of the SSA to life. In addition, we invite undergrads, grad students and faculty to participate in all of our events as equals. They are people too!

Tandem Initiative (President: Bashar Alsaeedi)
Tandem is a student-run association created by UBC students in April of 2014. The aim of Tandem is to become the trigger of various educational projects involving long-term support abroad through the use of video-calling softwares. Our project is built upon three key ideas. First, each student is connected by a one-to-one relationship with a tutor, in order to help each other grow and improve together. This Tandem relationship guarantees that each tutor will fulfill the needs of their own student on a long-term basis. Second, the use of video-calling tools enables us to interact with our students on a regular basis and answer their questions instantaneously. Third, we are aware that online tutorials can never fully replace actual schooling. Therefore we work in close cooperation with local schools in order to enable our students to achieve their true potential. We see Tandem s Ho project as the first of its kind for many others to come!
