Douglas Students’ Union Summer 2022 Updates –
To all our valued members, new and returning to Douglas College,
Welcome to campus for the summer semester! We hope that everyone is continuing to stay safe and taking care of themselves. We are excited and optimistic for the coming summer semester and we’re excited to welcome you to campus during welcome week this week.
The DSU will continue to be open throughout the summer, to provide you with services, advocacy and campus life this semester. At the New Westminster campus, our front desk is located on Level 2 of the DSU building. At the Coquitlam campus, our Kiosk is in the AB building (located next to security). Our front desks are open Monday through Friday from 10:00am-3:30pm at both campuses.
Some of the services available to you this summer are:
- Virtual front desk hours
- Emergency food bank
- The Deals App
- The Douglas Students’ App
- Menstrual products
- Handbook and dayplanner
- Lounges and study spaces
A full list of all our services and how to access them can be found at http://www.thedsu.ca/services/
We have some fun campus life events coming up this summer, like EDGE, summer BBQs, and other social events. Stay up to date on events this winter through our website or social media pages. https://www.thedsu.ca/events/
Access to affordable and accessible education is a priority for the DSU in hopes of removing barriers to education for students and those who need it. Some ways that we advocate for these are through advocating for fee regulation on international fees, more access to academic materials, and funding model adjustment for post-secondary institutions. For a full list of our campaign and advocacy work, please visit our website here.
Another part of the Advocacy work that we do is through our DSU Collectives. The DSU Collectives exist to represent and support different equity groups on campus. They are organized and run by the DSU constituency representatives, and they coordinate meetings, socials, workshops, events, and campaigns & advocacy work. The four collectives that we have are:
- DSU Accessibility Collective
- DSU Indigenous Students’ Collective
- DSU Pride Collective
- DSU Women’s Collective
