Office Hours (virtual): by appointment, please email Elise to set up a time. 

More about Elise (she/her):

As the Manager of Student Engagement, Elise oversees the Office for Student Engagement Program Operations. Growing up in the Land "Down Under" Australia as competitive athlete and coach, she completed a Certificate in Occupational Studies: Recreation at Swinburne University of Technology in 1996 and graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Science: Sports Coaching and Administration Degree at Deakin University in 1999. After a long hiatus from study, completed a Master of Education: Intercollegiate Athletic Leadership and Policy Studies at the University of Washington, USA in 2010.

"College can be a time for new beginnings; for re-imagining what is possible in life and taking intentional steps to get there," Elise reflects. "There are a number of rich learning experiences you can engage in outside of classroom, where you can make friends, pursue your interests, build skills and contribute to community. We hope that you reach out and connect with us to explore what is available to you."

In her spare time, Elise is an avid outdoor enthusiast and can be seen trail running or riding for hours up and down the North Shore mountains, taking long naps, and filling her phone full of photos of her rescue dog, Luka. 

Maggie Stewart Coordinator, VOLT (Student Volunteer Program)

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 Office for Student Engagement (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.
