The Social Science Students’ Council (SSSC) abides by a Constitution, which holds us accountable for ensuring the welfare of every Social Science student through building community, conducting robust advocacy and implementing programming endeavours.
The SSSC will strive to enrich the experience of every Social Science student by:
Representing students on academic, social, and political issues within the Faculty of Social Science and the larger Western community;
Encouraging student engagement with school activities;
Mobilizing student's voice and acting in the interests of Social Science students;
Programming in the interests of Social Science students, including but not limited to implementing conferences and ensuring accessible professional development opportunities;
Appropriately and responsibly allocating funds to benefit the Social Science student body by creating opportunities and attaining annual strategic goals;
Acting as a catalyst for change and influence to improve school experience; and
Being visible and approachable to Social Science students.
We want to hear from you, so please reach out to us in whatever way is most convenient for you.
We are located in the Social Science Building on Campus, on the bottom floor inside the Social Science Reading Room in the basement (Social Science Centre, Room 1051.) In the past, we have held office hours from 9 am to 5 pm each business day. This year, due to decreased campus activity as a result of COVID-19 the overall inefficiency of these office hours, we will instead host a monthly Zoom drop-in call. Times for these drop-in sessions will be posted on our social media so join our call to say hi, ask questions, or voice your concerns.
In the meantime, please engage with us on Instagram, Facebook, WeChat, Twitter, Tik Tok or via email. All of our accounts use the handle ssscwestern, and our Facebook and Instagram are linked below.
