Council of Western
To enhance the educational experience and quality of life for all undergraduates at Western University
Due to on-going provincial restrictions, the USC Office and services are currently closed.
The University Students’ Council (USC) is a student-led organization that first and foremost exists to advocate for and represent undergraduate students at Western University. Since 1965, we have grown beyond an advocacy organization, becoming one of the largest student governments in Canada and one of the largest not-for-profits in London, Ontario Canada. Each day, we work to support, improve and enhance your student experience, because we believe that students have the power to change the world.
Your 2021-22 Executives
Western is our community – our home. Our council meets once a month with your elected student representatives. Our council is comprised of our six-person Executive Committee, and representatives from each constituency council including all faculties, affiliates and professional schools.
