Student societies are mandatory-membership organizations run by and for students. Each Innis College student pays a membership fee to the ICSS, and each resident to the IRC, as part of their incidental fees.
The Innis College Student Society (ICSS) is the elected student government at Innis College. The ICSS is committed to providing educational, political, social and athletic services to all students enrolled at Innis College, including those who live in Residence on campus, as well as commuters who live off-campus. All Innis students are welcome to attend meetings of the ICSS Council, and are encouraged to participate in the many social events offered throughout the year. Elections to the ICSS are held in March/April and September each year. For more information check out the Facebook page or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Innis Residence Council (IRC) is the elected student council that serves the Innis Residence community. The IRC is made up entirely of Innis students and works exclusively to serve the students living there. The Innis Residence values community involvement and encourages residents to participate in the various House events and social activities offered by the IRC. To get involved and play an active role in the Residence, you can apply to be part of a wide variety of clubs, sub-committees and elected or volunteer positions. Visit the IRC website to learn more.
