what we do

The Student Calling Program (SCP) is a branch of the Annual Giving unit within the Development Office. At the front line is our team of dynamic Student Representatives who are current full time students representing various Faculties and program majors across campus. Our team is made up of over 40 Student Callers and 6 Student Supervisors. Acting as ambassadors, they are the heart of the SCP.

We reach thousands of alumni over the phone to share current University news, answer questions, update alumni records and offer the opportunity to make a gift to one of our valuable initiatives. Donations received by the SCP go towards a variety of initiatives that enhance the student experience, contribute to research outcomes, and strengthen our ties to the community.

join our team

The Student Calling Program is located in the Olympic Volunteer Centre (north end of McMahon Stadium), a short walk from main campus. We operate throughout the academic year, from September through June, with daily shifts from Monday to Sunday.

We employ students at the undergraduate and post-graduate level during the academic year. Students gain valuable work experience while working flexibly around a full course load. During their time at the SCP, our representatives have the opportunity to:

  • develop relationship-building and negotiation skills
  • enhance their communication skills
  • meet exciting new people and expand their network connections
  • become involved in a job that gives back

What I love most about the SCP is not only the excitement of working with a group of fellow students to foster alumni relationships and raise money for the University, but also how the experience has aided in my own personal growth. My time at the SCP has taught me how valuable it is to take a step out of my own comfort zone by being involved in the University outside of attending classes. Seeing a behind-the-curtain view of the incredible support from alumni makes me immensely proud to be part of this community of past, current, and future students of the University of Calgary.” Anissa Branco, BA English and BCOMM Business Technology Management, 2018

Working at the SCP has made me really appreciate the greater sense of community the University fosters, including our alumni, our communities around us, and my position as a student at the University of Calgary. By representing the University over the phone I am able to convey new information about the University community to alumni, and at the same time, learn what alumni are doing in the community as well. Through that, I am able to learn so much more about our community on all levels, which really helps to positively enhance my experience and perspective as a student.
