Return to Campus
DISCLAIMER: The Faculty of Community Services Society is NOT responsible for any decisions based on University Administrator's, Dean's Office of the Faculty of Community Services, or your individual Program Departments.
Nor can we change the current return plans, or be held responsible. We are all students like you! Not paid or employed by the university! Deep in our studies! Equally concerned...
The Faculty of Community Services Society is a student life based student society that plans events/initiatives for the undergraduate students at the Faculty of Community Services at the University.
The Faculty of Community Services Society has advocated and delivered on extra-safety precautions given on the situation. Due to us being a not for profit currently we do not have a budget to supply N95 / NK95 Masks to students. Instead we will host a few N95 fitting mask workshops, host tours of campus, plus follow the advice from students through our Return to Campus Survey that was made available in November 2021.
For any complaints relating to "Return to Campus" or advocating for different takes please email your program directly, as the university made it up to your programs staff to decide. For those of you who are excited for the semester great! See you soon. :)
