Welcome to the Education Students' Association

The Education Students’ Association (ESA) is the Alberta Teachers’ Association (ATA) student local for the University of Calgary. We are the representative body for the over 1200 undergraduate students enrolled in the Werklund School of Education as well as the local membership of ATA Student Local No. 2. Through our student executive council, the ESA endeavours to assist our members in becoming active participants of the ATA, all the while advancing the interest of every Werklund undergraduate student.

We offer annual memberships to all education undergraduates, which provide access to the immense resources of the ATA as well as the wide array of events and services hosted by the ESA executive council.
