Student Association (SIMSA)

School of Information Management Student Association

SIMSA is a peer-elected group which acts as the collective voice of SIM students within Dalhousie’s academic community. Aligned with this responsibility is SIMSA’s role as liaison between the SIM students, the faculty, and other graduate student associations. Through these collaborative relationships, SIMSA strives to champion student input into curriculum and course evaluation, as well as involvement with the graduate student body.

Student Culture at SIM

Through the coordination of activities and special events, SIMSA works to provide relationship-building, learning and networking opportunities for the students. Initiatives such as email buddies for incoming students, orientation activities, volunteer opportunities and alumni events showcase SIMSA’s dedication to fostering community spirit.
