Jaclyn De Jong, facilitator of the BusOne program at the Beedie School of Business, was presented with the SFU Champions for a Healthy Campus Community award by Dr Jon Driver, Vice-President, Academic at SFU.

The Beedie School of Business BusOne program has been announced as winner of the SFU 2013 Champions for a Healthy Campus Community award. The award comes as recognition of the BusOne program’s commitment to enhancing student wellbeing.

The SFU Champions for a Healthy Campus Community award is awarded annually to initiatives that make a substantial contribution to providing a healthy and supportive environment on SFU’s three campuses. The award was presented to Jaclyn De Jong, BusOne program facilitator, at a special lunch reception on December 9.

Now in its fourth year of operation, the BusOne program is a collaboration between Beedie School of Business faculty, staff, and students. It combines the Bus 201 class, which serves as an introduction to business for students, and a weekly workshop where students learn to be a part of the Beedie community.

The program was created in order to build student relationships and foster a sense of belonging. It provides students with professional, academic and personal skills, and introduces them to the various opportunities available at the school, such as co-op placements, exchange programs and support services such as Venture Connection.

“The BusOne program serves to bring lot of little things together to make a huge impact on the experience of new students at the Beedie School of Business,” says Jaclyn De Jong. “The students learn to build relationships and work as part of teams, and have found it to be a rewarding and engaging program. We want what’s best for our students, and the BusOne program creates a healthy and positive environment, building the framework for our students to succeed.”
