About Us


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. 


What We Do

We focus our efforts to organize, foster, and deliver events which impact a student in four areas of their university journey; professional development, academics, student wellness, and most importantly unity.

Our Mission

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 to work plus connect with students within the Faculty of Community Services to create, fund, and build the community, and unity we all want to see in our undergraduate studies.
