Equity Service Centres

CESAR along with the Ryerson Students Union, is committed to building and fostering a community based on the core social justice principles of equity and inclusion. Advocacy is integral to the work we do as a students’ union as groups of students continue to be marginalised and oppressed. We must all work together to bring about progressive social change and build a more inclusive Ryerson!

Each Community Service Group operates from an anti-oppressive framework and considers the intersections of identities when organizing events and campaigns. Get involved today!

Each Group Offers:

Volunteer opportunities • Events • Campaigns • Education & resources
