The Ryerson Students’ Union (RSU) is the students' union that represents full-time undergraduate and graduate students at Ryerson University. All full-time students are required to be members and pay a levy. This money is used to fund student groups, events for students and campaigning.

The Board[edit]

Equity Service Centers[edit]

The RSU has six Equity Service Centres: The Centre for Women & Trans People, The Good Food Centre, Racialised Students’ Collective, RyeACCESS, RyePRIDE, and the Trans Collective. These centres serve as a space for students from different marginalized backgrounds to come together and organize equity and social justice initiatives, events, and campaigns.

In 2010, The Board of Directors voted to change the name from "Community Service Groups" to "Equity Service Centers".

Criticism[edit]

The RSU has been criticized for funding a racist student group [1] and for banning a men's issues student group on campus.[2] In 2015, former RSU vice-president education Jesse Root was accused of deleting emails in violation of Ontario's privacy laws. [3]
