SMUSA calls for reinstatement of SMUWorks


Saint Mary’s University Student Association (SMUSA) is calling for the reinstatement of SMUWorks—an on-campus employment program— after Saint Mary’s University announced that it would not offer the program in the upcoming academic year. “The removal of SMUworks will deprive our students of opportunities, especially when they are already grappling with high rent, food inflation, and rising tuition costs,” read a release from SMUSA. SMUSA is also asking the university to ensure that student access to financial aid will not be impacted. In a statement, SMU AVP of External Affairs Margaret Murphy said that “[c]urrently, the university is looking at other work-study options.”
