Dear Grenfell Campus students,

Every undergraduate student who enrolls at Grenfell Campus, Memorial University of Newfoundland is a member of the Grenfell Campus Student Union (GCSU) and the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS). As part of a federation with more than a half million members from across the country, we are able to campaign effectively for student rights together.

It is the duty of the elected members of the GCSU to address any and all concerns of students. The student union has an open-door policy and is always looking for new ways to improve the lives of its members. Collectively, the 11 members of the Student Union Council are responsible for representing students and their concerns to the University administration, to government, and to other external organizations. Furthermore, they are responsible for managing the day-to-day activities and services of the union, like Grenfell students’ health plan and the GCSU Backlot. We are here to represent and work for you and your interests; please do not hesitate to approach any one of us with any issues or concerns you may have! We strive to build a united student community that is welcoming of social and cultural diversity as well as environmental Sustainability.

Now that you know a little more about the workings of the GCSU, we encourage all of you to get involved! Whether it is through participating in campaigns to reduce tuition fees and improve Student financial assistance, attending committee meetings, running for elected positions, participating in any of the GCSU caucus groups, clubs and societies, or by attending and helping to organize social events, we encourage you to take an active role in your student union! Follow us on Twitter @GCSU for updates on student politics, community politics and important events on campus. We look forward to working with you in the coming year!

In Solidarity,
Council of Grenfell Campus Student Union
