Most departments in Arts & Science have an associated Course Union. These are student organizations based around a program of study, and are funded by the Arts & Science Student Union, whose website is an excellent resource if you are not a Cinema Studies or Urban Studies student. That said, CINSSU’s events are open to Innis students generally (and other students, too!) so check them out!
For those students who are interested in focusing on their area of study there are Course Unions. Funded largely by the Arts & Science Student Union (ASSU), most academic departments have a Course Union that organizes events based around that topic, interacts with the faculty in those departments, and represents student interests.
The Cinema Studies Student Union (CINSSU) is one of the most active course unions at the University. They coordinate sneak-peeks of upcoming movies, hold academic seminars in Cinema and publish their annual journal, Camera Stylo. They are perhaps best known for their Free Friday Films, which showcase, for free, a variety of cinematic styles.
The Urban Studies Student Union (URSSU) represents all those in Urban Studies programs at U of T. The executive is composed of elected undergraduate students who organize urban-focused academic and social events, provide peer support, and raise awareness about urban issues.
Urban Studies is a multidisciplinary program spanning the study of architecture, economics, environment, geography, history, politics, and sociology as they relate to cities. If you would like to become more active within the student union, have questions about events or the program, or are interested in collaborating with URSSU in some way, you can contact them by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Arts and Science Student Union (ASSU) coordinates the efforts of nearly 40 course unions, from all corners of the Faculty of Arts and Science. Visit their website for contact information and more details.
