Department Associations

Department Associations

What are Department Associations?

Department Associations represent and provide services to all students enrolled in their department. Many of them also include members who take courses in their department, or who are interested in the subject matter their department covers. Their activities include, but are not limited to:

  • Representing their students to their Department, Faculty Association, and the Students’ Union
  • Coordinating social events; and
  • Providing services.

Each Department Association is unique in its innate understanding of the issues and concerns that affect the students in that Department. Their relatively small size and the tight-knit communities they create give them a level of reach and involvement with their members that Faculty Associations and the Students’ Union often find it difficult to achieve. As such, they play a highly important role in advocacy and community-building on campus.

Check your Faculty Association or Bears Den to find information about your Department Association.
