The Central Student Association (CSA) is the undergraduate students’ association at the University of Guelph, local 54 of the Canadian Federation of Students (CFS).
The CSA was founded in 1973 on the belief that students together have more power than students alone. We advocate on behalf of our membership, representing collective interests on issues as diverse as public transit, neighborhood relations, and accessible education.
The CSA is here to listen to student concerns – be they academic, community, social or environmental – and take action. We also seek to protect and advance student rights on campus, in the community, and on a provincial and cross-Canada scale.
The Central Student Association is a semi- autonomous, not-for-profit organization, run by students for students. We work democratically to serve and protect the rights of undergraduate students at the University of Guelph. The day-to-day management of the Central Student Association consists of an elected Executive, a Board of Directors, numerous other staff, and volunteers.
