As we adjust to the ongoing changes of the pandemic, the CSA Executives want to better understand what supports you are looking for with return to campus and where we should focus our advocacy efforts. We'd like to ensure that we are accurately advocating for you, and this works best when we know directly what our students are feeling.
As per the University of Guelph's announcement for a two-week remote start to the Winter 2022 semester, the CSA and it's services will be operating as follows. Please check back for updates and visit individual service pages for office hours and additional details.
- Closed until at least Monday, January 31.
The CSA and GSA ran a joint referendum on the Universal Bus Pass in Fall 2021. The joint referendum passed and therefore the Universal Bus Pass fee will be charged to all University of Guelph main campus students for the Winter 2022 semester, and UPass service will resume January 1, 2022.
The results of the referendum are joint. For transparency, the CSA and GSA individual voting results are presented below.
Content Warning: Mentions of violence, death, genocide, and colonialism.
Earlier this month, the heartbreaking news of the hidden deaths and mass graves of 215 Indigenous children at the Kamloops Residential School in British Columbia was brought to the attention of non-Indigenous people across the country. This is tragic news to many of us on this land, however, for our Indigenous communities - this has been confirmation of what has been known all along.
The CSA offers our condolences to the family and friends of those who are grieving the loss of four innocent community members due to a horrific act of Islamophobia and racism in London, Ontario.
We are heartbroken by this senseless violence. Islamophobia, racism, and/or any forms of discrimination has no place at the CSA and we hope to work with students to tackle discrimination and racism in all its forms.
To the University of Guelph campus community and City of Guelph residents:
During the past week the CSA was disappointed to learn that there has been an outbreak of COVID-19 in the University of Guelph’s East Residence complex as a result of unsanctioned social gatherings in townhouses that were held between January 14th and January 16th. Since being made aware of this outbreak, the CSA has been in constant contact with the University of Guelph regarding the measures that have since been taken to ensure the safety of undergraduate students and all other individuals on campus.
