Without you, there is no USC. And similarly, if people on this campus aren’t informed about the events we’re running, the supports we offer, or the decisions that are up for debate, we are not fulfilling our goal to enrich your student experience. Get involved in the Communications portfolio to help spread the message on campus and get the word out. Whether you want to talk with students about their needs and join or Hype Team, or your passions lie behind the lens of camera shooting great photos or videos, there’s something for everyone to explore in Communications.
The USC thrives and functions on student feedback. We exist to advocate for you. And while the USC has the power to change things within our organization, a lot of issues that directly affect students are out of our control and need to be addressed through advocacy initiatives. If speaking about student concerns on and off campus (and to all levels of government) on behalf of our ever-changing student body is something that interests you, get involved with our Advocacy portfolio. You’ll have the power to talk one on one with students and brainstorm the best approach to get their needs heard.

If you would like to assist in removing those barriers and ensuring that all the diverse voices of Western are represented and considered in every decision the USC makes, get involved in the “Inclusivity Portfolio” and help celebrate uniqueness and individuality.
