As a collective UCRU advocates to the Federal Government for a better university experience for all students. We acknowledge that our members live, work, and study across Canada on the traditional and unceded territory of many Indigenous peoples including the Cree, Dené, Métis, Sioux, Huron Wendat, Attawandaran, Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Leni-Lunaape, Musqeaum and the many distinct Coast Salish peoples.
UCRU is committed to advocating for the needs of Indigenous students and furthering Indigenization, decolonization, and reconciliation in our communities and beyond. Each year, UCRU members determine our annual priorities, and create federal policy solutions based on those topics. This year, UCRU is advocating for student mental health, international students, student financial assistance, and housing.
