Campaigns

CSD’s Campaigns require a great deal of support from volunteers, and input from students who face challenges related to these campaigns on campus. Please contact us if you’d like to join our volunteer team, or if you’d like to do a consultation with us concerning your thoughts on one or more of our campaigns.

Active Living Campaign

This campaign will include consultations with students who do face barriers in accessing sports services on campus. Check back to our website or contact us for consultation processes!

(the CAN! Campaign), which advocates for a more physically accessible campus.
