The University Affairs department is the voice of political advocacy for undergraduate students. The Students’ Union works with the Cities of Waterloo and Brantford as well as the provincial & federal governments to improve quality and access to post-secondary education
The University Affairs department conducts its provincial advocacy alongside the Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance (OUSA), a respected stakeholder in the post-secondary sector. OUSA is comprised of eight different member schools, each of which is a leader in post-secondary education in Ontario. Through OUSA, the Students’ Union develops evidence-based policy and works with key provincial politicians to implement it.
