Welcome to WUSC 2006!

WHAT DOES WUSC STAND FOR? The World University Service of Canada (WUSC) is a national organization that emphasizes the importance of education in constructing a more equitable world. With over 50 chapters in universities and colleges across the country, WUSC generates cross-cultural understanding and cooperation through a number of various initiatives. At the forefront of WUSC’s agenda is the Student Refugee Program (SRP) which sponsors approximately forty students each year to study in Canada. With funds from the AMS, student fees and other sources the UBC WUSC committee is able to sponsor up to four students each year. Most of these students come from East Africa, bringing with them a sound academic record and an even stronger commitment to social responsibility.


The UBC chapter of WUSC invites anyone from the university community to join us in our efforts to fundraise for local and overseas projects.

The weekly meetings for the upcoming fall semester have yet to be schedualed, but they will most likely be either Tuesdays or Thursdays 12:30-1:30.

Please feel free to come out & join us!
