This is YOUR Students’ Union Representing over 30,000 full-time undergraduate and graduate students
WHAT IS THE RSU?
THE RYERSON STUDENTS’ UNION Every full-time undergraduate student and all graduate students are members of the Ryerson Students’ Union.
The RSU is the central student organisation at Ryerson and is independent from the university itself. The students’ union works to protect and promote student rights, build community and provide cost saving services.
YOUR UNION YOUR VOICE
Our ultimate goal is a high quality post-secondary education system that is accessible to all and that recognizes the legitimacy of student representation and the validity of student rights. The students’ union achieves this by undertaking educational programming, campaigns, lobbying and social events that enhance the university experience for its members and the community as a whole.
CANADIAN FEDERATION OF STUDENTS NATIONAL REPRESENTATION
The CFS also has designated constituencies to represent the diverse needs of students including:
• Racialised students • Queer and trans* students • Students with disabilities • International students • Francophone students • Women students • Graduate students • Aboriginal students
The RSU recognizes that no individual students’ union, no matter how big or active, has the resources or political clout to effectively influence the provincial and federal government on its own. For that reason, the RSU and all of its members are united with students across Canada through membership in the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS) – we are Local 24. In addition to this national and provincial advocacy, our members benefit from bulk-purchasing savings and services like the International Student Identity Card and the Studentsaver discount program.
Ryerson Students’ Union [SCC311, 55 Gould Street] 416.979.5255 • email@example.com
Through the CFS, graduate students are also members of the National Graduate Caucus and aboriginal students are part of the National Aboriginal Caucus.
WHAT IS THE RSU?
THE MANDATE OF THE Ryerson Students’ Union:
ADVOCATE AND LOBBY on behalf of our members to protect their rights.
BUILD COMMUNITY on campus by organizing inclusive, diverse events and supporting campus groups that meet academic, political, religious and social needs.
PROVIDE COST-SAVING SERVICES like the Used Book Room, CopyRITE, Members’ Health and Dental Plan and the Discount TTC Pass.
WHAT IS THE RSU?
RSU EXECUTIVE 2013-2014 Dear Members, Welcome to the start of a new year at Ryerson. Throughout the year we hope that this handbook will be a useful resource and guide to your campus and your Students’ Union. As full time undergraduate students or graduate students here at Ryerson you are a member of the Ryerson Students’ Union. This means you have access to free on-campus events, advocacy, social justice initiatives, discounts and member-only services among many other benefits. As a united 30,000 members of the RSU, students here at Ryerson have worked together to win some incredible victories. When students work together we see results. By working together we have closed Gould Street, secured additional multi-faith space for students, and won a Fall Reading Week. However, students still face many barriers on campus, from high tuition fees, to unaffordable transit, to experiences of ableism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism and racism that occur in our classrooms and in our communities. Students continue to need a strong Students’ Union that will fight for students’ rights and a more inclusive campus. As students in Ontario we pay the highest tuition fees in the country and continue to see them climb. This year we need to be more united than ever to stop tuition fee hikes and make education more affordable and accessible for all students. We also know that the issues students face at Ryerson are not unique to our campus; that’s why it’s important to build a strong student movement by working with students across the province and country. By working together with more than 600,000 students who are members of the Canadian Federation of Students, our national students’ union, we can accomplish amazing things.
Together we can build a strong and united students’ union. Get involved, get active and be heard!
In solidarity, Your RSU Executive Ryerson Students’ Union [SCC311, 55 Gould Street] 416.979.5255 • firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT IS THE RSU? roshelle lawrence, Vice-President education
melissa Palermo, President United we are stronger. Whether it’s working together on even more free and inclusive events, improving our cost saving services, fighting for more affordable education, or building a more equitable campus community, there’s power in your students’ union. But we can’t do it without you, whether you live on campus, or commute to Ryerson – the RSU has a place for you. As your President, I look forward to hearing from you and fighting for the things that matter most to students, so get involved and have your say!
Today’s students face an increasing amount of barriers to accessing post- secondary education. Battling through tuition fee increases and unfair university policies, many students see post-secondary education as a debt-sentence. As your Vice-President Education, I will continue to work hard and fight for a system of post secondary education that is accessible for all, and to ensure that university policies and agendas include students. Continuing the fight for education is a must, and collectively we can achieve that goal.
rajean Hoilett, Vice-President equity Ryerson is one of the most diverse campuses in Canada. With this diversity, comes an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate our differences, while working together in building an inclusive campus community. United students have the power to organise and challenge racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and ableism. As your Vice-President Equity, I hope to use this year to continue fostering a community that is accountable to one another, and celebrates our differences, to create a more accessible, inclusive, and safe campus for all.
Ifaz Iqbal, Vice-President operations
danielle Brogan, Vice-President Student life and events University is one time in your life that you have the chance to try new things, make new friends and become part of a community.

Whatever your interests are, there’s an event for you. As your Vice-President Student Life and Events, I hope to help you make the most of your experience at Ryerson. Don’t be afraid to get involved, and try something new.
We recognise that being a student is expensive. RSU services provide an opportunity for students to access discounts on the things they need. The RSU works hard to provide you with fantastic deals and discounts like the TTC discounted metropass, discounted movie tickets, raptors tickets and other great deals.

BY TAKING ACTION,
After years of double-digit tuition fee increases, students pressure the Ontario government to cap fee hikes at 2% A proposal by Queen’s University over the next that would have opened the door 5 years to unlimited tuition fee increases
students have achieved great victories:
Students make affordable, high quality post-secondary education is successfully blocked a key provincial election issue After the provincial election & a huge
student mobilisation at Queen’s Park, we won a 2-year tuition fee freeze for Ontario students
first ever national 2006: 2008: Canada’s grants program is created,
2009: Students in Toronto win a discounted TTC metro pass
worth $350 million, to help alleviate student debt
As a result of students working together, the Ontario government increases post-secondary education funding by over $1 billion, restores up-front student grants & reaffirms the International tuition fee freeze students win the right to work off-campus
Students win a province-wide credit transfer system, improving the ability for students to move between programs, as well as colleges & universities
Today, Ontario has the highest tuition fees and the lowest per student funding in the country. Now more than ever, we as students must stay united, active and engaged. Get involved.

RYEACCESS OUR MISSION To provide advocacy, campaigns, outreach, education, and events with a focus on both systemic and individual issues. To create an equitable environment and promote the empowerment, autonomy and freedom of students with disabilities.
As students with disabilities, it is our time to reclaim our bodies and minds, take control of the services we use, and work with our allies to achieve the freedom and autonomy we deserve. This freedom comes in multiple forms including: professors and staff working with us to find creative solutions; the ability to physically access every building, classroom and office on campus; knowing that when you are experiencing a crisis that people with be there to support you in the ways you need – rather than forcing treatment; full choice and self-direction of support services such as attendants, interpreters and interveners; and much more.
To combat the ableism and audism that is pervasive throughout society and on our campus.
