Quest University Students’ Association (hereafter referred to as “QUSA”) is a non-profit society incorporated under the BC societies act and governed by an elected Board of Directors. QUSA is governed by a set of legislative documents including bylaws, a constitution, policies, procedures, and roles and responsibilities. QUSA works collectively with members of the Student Association, Administrators, Staff, and Faculty, as well as regional stakeholders to improve the quality of student life at Quest University Canada (hereafter referred to as “Quest”).
QUSA acts as a political voice to positively shape the greater Quest community. It does so according to the values, interests, and concerns of the Student Association, and of all groups of students, especially those marginalized by structures of power. As such, QUSA is committed to political, social, and environmental justice. QUSA advocates for students’ rights and the betterment of Quest.
QUSA aims to improve the vibrant Quest community. Through this, we improve the quality of student life on campus through funding services, initiatives, events, and committee grants.
