SUSK supports its membership of Ukrainian Student Organizations (USOs) at post-secondary institutions across the country by offering ways to fund events, a toolkit to help maintain the USO’s presence on campus and in the community, and guidelines for creating a USO on campus. SUSK also provides resources on Ukrainian and Ukrainian-Canadian history, such as the Holodomor and Ukrainian Internment Camps in Canada, to bring awareness to Ukrainian culture and history in Canadian post-secondary institutions.
CREATE A USO
So, you want to start a USO on your campus. Here’s what you need:
Read this guideline that outlines the process of creating or reviving a USO. It highlights how to form your team, become officially recognized at your post-secondary institution, attract members, and much more.
Use this template when creating your constitution for your USO. Edit it according to your USO’s needs and your post-secondary institution’s requirements.
Access the SUSK Toolkit — a list of resources and tips for USOs in event planning, club promotions, and raising awareness for Ukrainian culture and heritage (compiled by SUSK’s 2015-16 team members).
SUSK invites all Ukrainian Student Organizations across Canada to apply for the USO Project Grant. The application for 2019-20 can be found here.
