ABOUT THE OISE STUDENT TEACHERS' UNION

 

The OISE Student Teachers' Union (STU) is a strong body of elected representatives that aims to serve you.  During the school year the STU involves OISE students in social, educational, and athletic events that give you an opportunity to interact with your peers in a fun atmosphere outside of the classroom.

This website is designed with you in mind, and serves as an in-depth guide to STU activities throughout the year.  Additionally, we have provided information on how to get involved in committees, special events, and OISE athletics. 

Throughout the year, the OISE STU is available to answer any questions you may have.  Your participation and input is important, and this year we encourage you to be involved.  Stop by the new STU office located in the OISE building, room 8-110, or send us an email at stu.oise@utoronto.ca.

Who Is A Member of the STU?

Every B.Ed. student at OISE is automatically a member of the Student Teachers' Union. A portion of your student fees goes towards the STU to fund events and activities organized by the STU each year.  

WHO MAKES DECISIONS IN THE STU?

There are two elected bodies within the STU:  Class Representatives and the STU Executive.  These groups make decisions on behalf of the student body and organize social, academic and athletic events and activities.  

WHAT ARE CLASS REPS?  HOW CAN I BECOME A CLASS REP?

At the beginning of each school year, every cohort chooses 1-3 people from their class to represent their class in the STU.  These people are Class Representatives (Class Reps).  In total, there are 14 Class Reps for the 2016-17 academic year, and they will come together once a month for STU General Assemblies.  Important decisions are made during these meetings, such as elections for the STU Executive, approval of the STU operating budget, and additions/changes to the STU constitution.  
In addition, Class Reps inform the STU Executive of the desires of their classmates.  Most importantly, Class Reps spread the word about events and activities to their classmates! In short, the Class Reps are a liaison between the student body and the STU Executive. 

What is the STU Executive?

In previous years, the STU Executive has consisted of 12 elected representatives and two paid positions (Treasurer and Media Coordinator). During the 2016-17 year, there are 4 executive positions. The executives meet once every month to plan events, organize activities, coordinate intramural sports, and address issues that are important to the student body. This group of people hold the responsibility of using your student fees to benefit the B.Ed. students at OISE and they are always open to comments and suggestions.  Stop by and say hello!

The 2016-17 STU team has created a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/stu.oise) to keep B.Ed students updated on our current events and initiatives. We invite you to "LIKE" this page when you have a chance to receive notifications from us!
