What is the new USC?
The University Students’ Council wants you to know: they’re closer to you.

“Closer to you” is the USC’s new slogan, summarizing their new ideas and initiatives for the future.

Council members introduced “The New USC” in a short presentation Wednesday night. The event aimed to redefine the USC’s goals and values, and explain what the USC has to offer students.

“We’re not changing the way we do things,” Amy Bi, communications officer for the USC, explained. “We’ll continue operations as usual, with a new focus.”

The presentation focused on cultivating diversity, supporting clubs, and improving relations with the London community. VP-finance David Singh outlined four key objectives: community, innovation, opportunity and teamwork.

USC President Tom Stevenson delivered a crowd-pleasing address. “As students we embody a future that sees no colour, makes no effort to categorize love, and stands to celebrate diversity as the differences that make us one.”

“The New USC is about placing people at the center of all that we do, and ensuring that we can move closer to you,” Bi concluded.
