About Douglas Students' Union
Like most students’ unions in Canada, the Douglas Students’ Union has three main purposes:
- provide services to save students money and support student success;
- engage in advocacy to make members’ lives better, uphold students’ rights, and make post-secondary education more affordable;
- host events and activities to improve students’ experiences outside the classroom, and support a vibrant campus life.
The Douglas Students’ Union also aims to execute all of the above purposes in a manner the respects the funds provided to the organization by students, and is reflective of good governance principles.
The Douglas Students’ Union is a non-profit society incorporated under the BC Societies Act, and governed by a set of bylaws. The Students’ Union operates on both the New Westminster and Coquitlam Campuses, and is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of students elected each year.
