CONSTITUTION & BYLAWS
The Constitution and Bylaws of the Capilano Students' Union are the documents which set out the primary nature and characteristics of our Students' Union. The provisions of the Bylaws contain the important rules of the Union and therefore have a direct bearing on the rights of the members within the Students' Union. As a member it is important to become familiar with the documents in order to fully participate. Copies of the Constitution and the Bylaws are available at the CSU Office in the Maple Building.
THE PURPOSES OF THE UNION ARE:
a) to organize students on a democratic, cooperative basis for advancing students' interests, and advancing the interests of the students' community;
b) to provide a common framework within which students can communicate, exchange information, and share experience, skills, and ideas;
c) to bring students together to discuss and cooperatively achieve necessary educational, administrative, and legislative change wherever decision-making affects students;
d) to facilitate cooperation among students in organizing services which supplement the learning experience, provide for human needs, and which develop a sense of community with our peers and with other members of society;
e) to articulate the desire of students to fulfill the duties and be accorded the rights of citizens in British Columbia, in Canada, and in the international community;
f) to achieve the goal of a system of post-secondary education which is accessible to all, which is of high quality, an which is nationally planned; which recognizes the legitimacy of student representation and the validity of students' rights; and whose role in society is clearly recognized and appreciated.
