Council of Western
To enhance the educational experience and quality of life for all undergraduates at Western University
The University Students’ Council (USC) is a student-led organization that first and foremost exists to advocate for and represent undergraduate students at Western University. Since 1965, we have grown beyond an advocacy organization, becoming one of the largest student governments in Canada and one of the largest not-for-profits in London. Each day, we work to support, improve and enhance your student experience, because we believe that students have the power to change the world.
Western is our community – our home. Our council meets once a month with your elected student representatives. Our council is comprised of our five-person executive (President, Vice President, Student Programs Officer, Communications Officer and Secretary Treasurer), and representatives from each constituency council including all faculties, affiliates and professional schools.
Joining a club opens up many opportunities and allows for a balance between academic life and extra-curricular activities. With close to 200 clubs to choose from, there is something for everyone!
