What's happening on campus

This is your chance! Challenge yourself to discover more about the leader within, and experience leadership in a whole new light. The purpose of this weekend retreat is to create a supportive community-based environment where students can reflect on their individual leadership capabilities, collaborate with a team of other student leaders, and observe how they and their team fit into the wider community. At each level of leadership, students will be encouraged to think outside the box and create novel and innovative ideas to address real life topics that affect students and student leaders at University of Toronto. Together, let’s re-imagine leadership. 🌟 ELIGIBILITY: Open to all students and student leaders at U of T who are interested in connecting closely with other student leaders on campus, challenging themselves in a safe and supportive environment, creating innovative programming, and diving deeper into key topics that affect students and student leaders at U of T. 🌟 APPLICATIONS: This retreat is application based. The retreat committee will review all applications and notify successful applicants of their acceptance.

About Us

Founded in 1901, the University of Toronto Students’ Union (UTSU) is the official student government of more than 50,000 students at the University of Toronto. If you’re a full-time undergraduate student at the St. George Campus or the Mississauga Campus, you’re automatically a member of the UTSU. As a student government, we operate independently of the University and strive to be a democratic, member-driven organization.

The UTSU is led by a President and six Vice-Presidents, all of whom report to a council called the Board of Directors. The President, the Vice-Presidents, and the Board of Directors are all elected directly by the members.

The UTSU has two essential functions: 1) advocacy and 2) service provision. Our advocacy work includes lobbying the government and the university administration, organizing public education campaigns, and supporting student initiatives. Our services include grants for students in need, funding for student clubs, and the student health insurance plan. Finally, all of our work is guided by a commitment to equity.

Welcome to the UTSU—we’re here to serve you.
