Freeze The Fees: The Campaign Continues & Spreads across Saskatchewan!

On February 2nd, 2022, the University of Regina Students’ Union (URSU) and it’s International Students Caucus (ISC) held the largest rally to take place on campus in ten years, to formally launch our Freeze The Fees campaign. That was only the beginning. Now, the campaign continues towards achieving a freeze tuition for all International students and providing a more affordable, more accessible and more equitable academic experience for all international students in the province.

SLAC: The Student Legal Advocacy Centre Referendum

Free Legal Services For All Students, No Strings Attached.

Imagine a center where all students can receive free, one-on-one legal support for any academic, work or personal issues, be it a workplace, immigration, permits, or academic advocacy. In March, URSU will be hosting a referendum to bring such a center into reality, through a student referendum process.

Join our working group today and help us create a more just & equal campus and get involved, by contacting:PoliticalAction@ursu.ca

First Nations Solidarity

We, the students of the University of Regina pursue our post-secondary education on the Treaty 4 land and within the traditional territory of the Metis. These are the territories of the nêhiyawak, Anihšināpēk, Dakota, Lakota, and Nakoda, and the homeland of the Métis/Michif Nation.

While it is right of all First Nations students to be granted access to post-secondary education, that is too often not the case in actual practice. We at URSU want to play a role in advocating for the respecting of treaty rights that grant all First Nations students free and accessible post-secondary education. Furthermore, we want to support all First Nations students in attaining an education experience free of racism and discrimination. This is why, in the coming months, we plan to investigate how we can best support our First Nations students by working more closely with the First Nations University Students’ Union. And we hope to also support settler allies in their work to be advocates for our First Nations students.

Stop Asian Hate

The COVID-19 pandemic has unfortunately also led to a new pandemic of increased racism against Asians across North America.

URSU is committed to challenging hatred, bigotry and oppression whenever it arises on our campus and in our community. In the coming months, we hope to launch a student-led campaign to #StopAsianHate.
