The COVID-19 global pandemic has imposed exceptional circumstances on students and universities. With the short-term transition to remote learning, the Students’ Union has worked diligently to assess our fee structure and pivot our services accordingly. It is important to recognize that with the continuation of learning through more challenging conditions comes an imperative to enhance and prioritize a diversity of student supports.
Additionally, our student leaders are carefully planning for the eventual transition back to life on campus, recognizing that this transformative disruption will require imagining new ways to build community, ensure student wellness, and advocate for a safe and dynamic academic environment. Understanding that there are certain limitations with the current state of remote delivery, the Students’ Union has temporarily reduced its fees for the Fall 2020 term. We remain committed to upholding the renowned Laurier student experience.
