Maggie Stewart Acting Manager, Student Engagement

Email (preferred): mstewart@langara.ca
Office Hours (virtual): [coming soon]

More about Maggie (she/her):

Maggie is proud to oversee the programs she "grew up in". VOLT, Clubs, and community events greatly helped Maggie develop leadership skills when she attended Langara from 2009 to 2015. She graduated with a Associates Degree in General Science with citations in Ecology and Environmental Studies from Langara, then pursued two certificates from Langara Continuing Studies (Volunteer Coordination, Management Skills), while studying at BCIT (Diploma Fish & Wildlife, BSc Ecological Restoration) and working at Langara College. She has worked in the OSE - the Hub since 2014.

"No one says when they're young that they want to be a volunteer or student engagement manager when they grow up!", Maggie jokes, "But my time in this profession has been incredibly rewarding - I love to work with the students, watch them grow and develop, and help them get to where they want to go"

In her spare time, Maggie plays fast-pitch softball in a queer woman's league, spends time with her partner Nic (she/her) and dog Kona, and finds every opportunity to watch wildlife in nature.
