What We Do

The Alberta Students' Executive Council (ASEC) is a provincial advocacy organization representing the interests of more than 100,000 students from 15 post-secondary institutions across Alberta. We are a place where students learn, lead and work together to create innovative solutions for Alberta‚Äôs post-secondary sector. 


Our Executive Council

Established in 1982, ASEC advances its advocacy goals by taking a collaborative approach to developing solutions for students. Recent examples of successful ASEC policy proposals include the launch of the $1.5M Alberta Campus Mental Health Innovation Fund, the development of the Serving Communities Internship Program, and reforms to the student financial aid system.
