UVSS Committees

Whether you want to plan awesome parties, make the SUB more sustainable, or if you actually are a policy wonk – there is a space for you. And, members of our committees actually go out and do stuff on campus and in the community other than just sit in a meeting room and talk.

Upcoming committee meetings are posted below. Members (UVic undergrads) are welcome to attend!
