As the official student voice on campus, The CSA works collaboratively with the university to improve the student experience. CSA executives sit on many committees and meet with Concordia administration regularly to ensure the student perspective is considered. We advocate for student rights and issues at the institutional, provincial, and federal levels. We organize various events and activities to enrich the student experience.
