University Student Commission

The University Student Commission proposes programs and policies to improve student and community relationships and establishes formal channels of communication between the two, represents the viewpoints of the university student population with respect to city policies and legislation, and reviews issues in the city governance process that have a potential to affect the interests of the university student population and associated activities. We are very interested in your views. Share them with us by email, by using our online form or attending our meetings. Members are representative of recognized student organizations and the student body at large.

The commission consists of 11 members who serve one-year terms and meet 10 times a year.


  • Meetings take place on Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m.
