Services Are Political
We offer many services to help make your university experience a more accessible, enjoyable one. We want you to know that we understand that our services are temporary measures to help deal with larger problems with the post-secondary education system and other public services. For this reason, we make sure that when we offer a service, we are also coordinating campaigns and advocacy efforts to address the root of the problem.
For example, we provide a discounted student TTC Metropass while advocating for more affordable transit fees. We provide a grant for student parents while advocating for affordable childcare. We provide a book bursary and a food bank while advocating for affordable education and an increase to the minimum wage.
If you have an idea for a service we should be offering, or a problem we should be tackling, let us know. We want to make sure that we are doing everything we can so that you can get the most out of your membership in the University of Toronto Students’ Union.
