SCSU Commissions and Committees

As a democratic organization the Scarborough Campus Students’ Union hosts the SCSU Commission as a forum for all SCSU members to actively participate in the work the Union is conducting. The SCSU membership voted to introduce commissions at the 2013 SCSU Annual General Meeting. Every student member has a vote at the commissions and can steer the work of the Union. The SCSU Commission has the ability to strike sub-committees and working groups.

If you would like to create a campaign. Develop a service, or plan an event, submit your idea the Friday before the upcoming Commission to president@scsu.ca

We meet the last Wednesday of every month from 5-7PM.

 

The Committees of the Union conduct all decisions made by the Board and seek Board approval in all matters. All Committees file an annual report to the Board the end-of-year Joint Board meeting. The Board maintains the following five committees:
