Student Societies

Student Clubs and Societies

The SRC approves and oversees the operations of all student clubs and societies. ¬†Each society has it’s own elected student leadership and is responsible for organizing their own functions and monitoring their budgets. ¬†Clubs and societies are required to send regular reports to the SRC reflecting on their activities, accounting for how they use funding allocated to them and contributing to the growth and development of student life.
