Personal Support

Student Development Officers (SDOs) provide a variety of student engagement and support services at College of the North Atlantic campuses. As a student at CNA, SDOs are your first-stop for many services including preparing to become a student at CNA; financial aid information; the orientation process including sessions and activities; scholarships and awards; graduation; and becoming familiar with and following the Student Code of Conduct as well as Student Rights and Responsibilities. The SDOs also advise and support the Student Representatives Council (SRC) at each campus, which is an important part of student life. During your time as a student, the SDOs are involved in student and graduate employment programs which may include delivering job search seminars, coordinating job training placements, connecting students to industry through the organization and delivery of career fairs, and supervising student employees. As well, SDOs coordinate and participate in  local and provincial recruitment strategies including signature events as well as campus tours, recruitment information sessions, and career fairs. SDOs are a liaison between students, support staff, faculty, campus college administration, senior college management and also work together to connect and support students, alumni, employers, and friends of the College.

If you have a question about CNA, ask the SDO!
