Getting Involved in Con-Ed

Activities and Events in Con-Ed

Keep an eye on your email inbox throughout the year to hear about incredible ways to meet other Con-Eddies and to be a part of the close-knit community that our faculty is so proud of, such as:

Some of these activities require a registration fee. Don't let these be a detriment to your involvement - you're welcome to apply for bursaries to help subsidize costs!

We hope to see you there, regardless of what year you're in!

Committees and Volunteering in Con-Ed

Keep an eye on your email inbox to learn about meeting times for these groups!

Community Affairs Committee: Chaired by the Community Affairs Coordinators, any student may be a part of this committee. The group organizes events and activities such as the Pancake Breakfast for charity, the Con-Ed Relay for Life team registration and fundraisers, Cover Your Crest, and other initiatives.

Photography Committee:

B.Ed Spread Committee:

QCE volunteers: The annual Queen's Conference on Education, held in January, is a fantastic professional development opportunity that would not be possible without the volunteers who greet delegates and speakers, help with setting up the workshop rooms and banquet hall, and much more!

Formal Committee: The Con-Ed Formal occurs each year in March, and its committee meets regularly leading up to the event to make decorations (adhering to the exciting themes!) and to brainstorm ideas for the execution of the event. Help us finish off the school year with style!

Two other committees that are involved with Formal are the Robert J. Hill Committee and Education Outreach Award Committee. Each committee is made up of a Chair from CESA Council, and one additional student from each year of Con-Ed who does not sit on CESA Council. These bodies host nominations and interviews for these two awards - R.J. Hill for overall contributions to Con-Ed life (presented to fourth-year students), and the Outreach award for outstanding community involvement in education (a $250 scholarship presented to students from any year).

Peer Tutoring: Con-Ed students may register as ASUS Peer Tutors for any courses in which they received a grade of B+ or higher. Their contact information will be given to other Con-Ed students looking for a tutor, and the rest of the details will be up to you to organize! The suggested pay rate is $12/hour. Contact the Academic Affairs Commissioner for more information about the service,.

Con-Ed Orientation Week

CESA is responsible for one of the nine different undergraduate Orientation Weeks that run at Queen's. It is a fantastic leadership opportunity for those interested in being either a leader or coordinator for the events!

Teach Exec is comprised of five people who are hired in October of each year. Any Con-Ed student that has been an Orientation leader in the past (in any capacity!) is encouraged to apply!

Teaches are the names we give our own Orientation leaders. Any Con-Ed students who are returning in September as Con-Ed students may apply for this opportunity! Applications take place in January and February, with results normally being released before Reading Week.
