The Full Story
The Faculty of Community Services (FCS) is the 2nd largest undergraduate faculty with over 8,200+ students. We are the last faculty at Ryerson University to NOT have its own student life. As shocking as it is none of FCS students tuition goes towards student life. Instead the tuition of FCS students goes towards services.
The Faculty of Community Services Society (FCSS) Steering Committee was put together in 2016 to form the very last faculty student society association at the university.
In Fall 2021 the FCSS will be attempting to go into a levy referendum
meaning that Faculty of Community Services undergraduate students will have the opportunity to vote yes if they do not want to continue being left out of enriching experiences, unity, academic advocacy, social opportunities, professional development, extra curriculars, more research + innovation, wellness-wellbeing, and mental health resources.
Our mission is to support and enhance the student experience under the four pillars Academics, Unity, Professional Development, and Well-Being. We are creating a platform for cross-program collaboration, opportunities for student social innovation, that are guided by the needs of our student community.
Our Objective is working to connect over 8,200+ urban health and social-care students within the Faculty of Community Services to create, fund, and build the community we all want to see in our undergraduate studies.
We are Ryerson University's Faculty of Community Services Society (FCSS). Formerly the Ryerson Community Services Society (RCSS). We are a society of dedicated student leaders from across the 9 schools in the Faculty of Community Services (FCS). We are a steering committee forming the umbrella organization for FCS. We are a student led committee that is here to ensure the future of student life within FCS remains a unified, connected, and strong community for generations to come.
