What are Student Associations?

UMSU Student Associations are student-organized groups which advocate for, represent, and provide services to students enrolled in a particular faculty, college, or residence.

Groups require official recognition from UMSU and the associated faculty, college, or residence.

According to The University of Manitoba Students’ Union Act, it is UMSU’s responsibility to maintain and promote responsible student government in the student associations. UMSU achieves this by setting minimum standards for student associations’ constitutions and finances, collecting fee levies to fund the student associations, managing secure electronic election software for student association elections, and using a governance model centered around the student associations.

Student Associations are run by their own membership according to their own constitutions. If you are enrolled in the faculty, college or residence represented by the student association, you are automatically a member and have a right to participate in the elections for the group.
