Society for Mature Students (SAGE)
The SAGE Society: A community for Mature Students.
To provide Western’s non-traditionally aged student population with a centralized academic and social community within The Student Success Centre.
We organize sessions of interest to mature students on topics such as financial aid, exam preparation, career planning, and we hold regular social events.
Join the hundreds of mature students who belong to the SAGE Society! We add all newly admitted mature students to our mailing list, and we welcome any mature student to get involved! Interested in being connected with the SAGE program? Email email@example.com.

Leadership Education Program
The Leadership Education Program (LEP) is a free program providing Western undergrads with the opportunity to gain a wealth of knowledge that will help them become truly effective leaders.
LEP is delivered in 14 modules divided into three tiers. The seven modules of tier one (Individual Leadership) focus on skills the individual needs to be an effective leader with topics such as communication, public speaking, self management, and campus involvement. The seven modules of tier two (Group Leadership) focus on the skills a leader needs to effectively facilitate group processes with topics like team building, facilitation, and conflict management.
Tier three is a service learning placement in an organization of the student’s choice, and is built upon the foundation of the earlier tiers while collaborating with teams and making an impact in the London community.
Successful completion of at least five modules from a tier will be recognized with a Letter of Accomplishment in Individual Leadership (Tier One), Group Leadership (Tier Two), or Community Leadership (Tier Three) signed by Dr. Amit Chakma, President of The University of Western Ontario.
