The Computer Science Student Union, or CSSU for short, represents over 1200 Computer Science students who are either taking a Computer Science course or are part of a Computer Science POSt at the University of Toronto St. George campus. We are a student governed body that receives funding from the Arts and Sciences' Student Union, the Department of Computer Science, and our union store. The description of the structure, rules, and processes of the union are described in our constitution. The primary goal for the CSSU team is to improve the academic, social, and professional lives of computer science students. To do so, we intend to focus on the following:
Members of the Executive Council are elected by the student body to serve one-year terms. These student leaders are responsible for organizing the CSSU’s events and initiatives to support undergraduate students.
General Council members are volunteers appointed by the Executive Council to assist with our initiatives and be leaders in the community.
The CSSU proudly maintains a student lounge in BA 2250 in which students can hang out, network, play games and ask questions. Office operations volunteers help manage the lounge, the store/stockroom, kitchen, gaming centre, and study spaces. They also assist in answering questions and directing students to appropriate resources. Members of the Executive and General Councils also generally serve shifts in office operations.
Office operations are set to resume on a limited basis. As such, only members of the Executive and General Councils will be holding office hours in the lounge. See Office Hours.
At the CSSU, we strive to represent Computer Science students as best as possible, and to create an inclusive and welcoming community. As part of this effort, we are committed to listening to the feedback of CSSU members. Using this always-open form, you can submit feedback to us about any aspect of our activities, past or present. If you would like, you can provide your name or contact email so we can follow up with you directly. You may also remain anonymous. All feedback is welcome! Share your thoughts!
