Type of Position: Volunteer, eligible for Co-Curricular Record

Length of Term: September 1st, 2021 to May 31st, 2022

The CSU’s mission is to serve students, defend their rights, and act as their highest representative body at Concordia. Two things are essential: that we are beholden to our membership, and that our funds are used responsibly.

Description of the Role: The Concordia Council of Student Life (CCSL) oversees all of the services offered at Concordia and is responsible for the student experience outside of the classroom. The council consists of an equal number of students, professors, and university staff. The CCSL can be an incredibly rewarding experience and a great way to help improve your university and its student life. There are two (optional) sub-committees, the Special Projects Fund (SPF) Committee, and the Outstanding Contribution Awards (OCA) Committee, which oversee where student money is allocated to student groups and students, and also which students should receive awards for their contributions to student life. This is your opportunity to make dreams come true and to recognize the people who work endlessly to provide a better student experience at Concordia.

The ideal candidate is comfortable speaking in a room full of students and administration, creative with ways to add value to student life on campus and some experience granting funds.

Requirements: Candidates must be available for Friday mornings. Meetings are held monthly on Friday mornings.

Eligibility: The position is open to all undergraduate students. Mandatory meetings are held one Friday morning per month.

Equitable Appointing: The Concordia Student Union welcomes the contributions that individuals from traditionally marginalized communities, as outlined under the prohibited grounds for discrimination in the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms, bring to our organization. Marginalized communities include racialized people and visible minorities; Indigenous people; women; 2SLGBTQIA+ people; ethnic minorities; language minorities; and people with disabilities. Applicants shall feel free to self-identify in their cover letter or application if they are a member of a marginalized community. Candidates may also feel free to include the phrase “I would like to be considered for employment equity” to be considered for employment equity without disclosing which group they are a part of.

How to Apply: Please email your CV and cover letter to appointments@csu.qc.ca with the subject line “CCSL Committee Member – 2021” as the email subject line.
