ORGANIZATIONS & EVENTS
STUDENTS’ REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL (SRC)
The Students’ Representative Council (SRC) is the student government on campus. It is a group of elected students who represent the interests of the student body to University administration, the Squamish community, and the students themselves. The SRC was established in 2007 as a class project, where students involved in the project recognized the need to represent student welfare and interests for a healthy community on campus. The SRC maintains a sizeable budget, of which a vast majority is used for student initiatives including clubs, shuttles to local events, concerts, fundraising, and infrastructure on campus.
