E-IDEAS (Engineering - Inclusion, Diversity, Equity Advancement for Students) empowers EDI Affinity student groups to provide students with support, networking and professional development opportunities, mentorship and career resources to cultivate an environment that recognizes and brings awareness to equity, diversity and inclusion and reflects the intersectionality of the UBC Engineering student body.
APSC PD has prepared various resources to support E-IDEAS groups and similar initiatives:
- E-IDEAS Funding Toolkit - Want to obtain more funding for your EDI.I initiative but not sure where to start? This funding toolkit lists various UBC funding opportunities that can provide you support.
- E-IDEAS Event Proposal Form - Planning an event requires careful consideration of time and resources. We created this form to help student groups plan events such as study nights or industry nights. An example event template has also been completed for your reference.
Affiliation for E-IDEAS Groups
Having an officially recognized E-IDEAS group will allow your team to gain access to many resources. To become officially recognized you must go through training courses, applications and safety training. This page will show you the path your team needs to take and which roles need to complete which modules.
Student Group Approval and Renewal (SuperApp)
The SuperApp is an annual application process that student groups need to complete to be affiliated with the Faculty. To be eligible to receive resources (including funding, space, training and administrative support) from APSC and its departments, student groups or clubs must complete the SuperApp and required training.
Training for Engineering Student Leaders (TESL)
The annual Training for Engineering Student Leaders (TESL), formally known as Applied Science Student Leadership Symposium (SLS), is a mandatory orientation for student leaders across Engineering. The TESL 2023 will consist of a series of online workshops tailored specifically to prepare Engineering student leaders, execs and team leads for their roles in the upcoming year.
Please contact email@example.com for any registration inquiries.
Who needs to complete TESL?
It is mandatory for all team captains/co-captains, safety officers and finance/treasurerposition holders to attend the orientation to be eligible for PAF Funding.
