Advocacy

Grenfell Campus Student Union advocates for its members to University administration and to provincial and federal governments. Every year, the Union participates in national and provincial general meetings of the Canadian Federation of Students. At these meetings, students develop campaign plans, budgets, and work to develop and improve Federation services. Membership in the Federation gives the Union the right to vote on all resolutions at these meetings and fully participate in decision-making.

Union members have lobbied Members of the House of Assembly and successfully pressured the provincial government to freeze and reduce tuition fees for over fifteen consecutive years. The Union has and will continue to focus on improving student financial assistance, increasing funding for post-secondary education and supporting international student issues.

If you are interested in participating in Student Union campaigns or committees, drop by the GCSU or call 637-6200 ext. 5367.
