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 Student Union (CSU) proudly represents all undergraduate arts, business, engineering, fine arts, science, and independent students studying at Concordia University. The CSU uses its resources to provide student services, fund clubs, and facilitate projects. The organization conducts its business through several important Committees:

  1. Appointments: Interviewing and appointing students to different positions.
  2. Clubs and Space: Approving new clubs and club budgets.
  3. External: Supporting various social justice movements.
  4. Finance: Overseeing the CSUs budget and financial practices.
  5. Loyola: Focusing on the Student Experience at Loyola Campus.
  6. Policy: Reviewing and improving our Bylaws and Policies.
  7. Student Life: Event Planning and approving funding for student projects.
  8. Sustainability: Making Concordia more sustainable.
  9. Mental Health: Supporting Mental Health Initiatives on Campus.
  10. Sponsorships: Finding sponsors for the Union which fall in line with our values.

By joining a committee, you will get to make important decisions on how your student union prioritizes projects and initiatives, allocates its time, and uses its resources. This is your opportunity to enter student politics, develop policy writing skills, gain financial experience, and build contacts with stakeholders throughout the Concordia community!

Eligibility: CSU Committee positions are open to all currently-registered undergraduate students. Previous experience is an asset, but is not required—passion and drive is all you need!

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 cover letter and CV to appointments@csu.qc.ca with “Committees – 2021” as the email subject line. You may apply for multiple committees.
