ABOUT SUS

SUS is your Science student society.

The Science Undergraduate Society of UBC represents over 7,000 Science students and 30 Science clubs. We represent each and every UBC Science undergraduate student. Every Science student is a member of SUS and pays an annual fee that is used to run all the services, events, and grant programs that SUS offers.

Our Mandate

  • Promote the academic, physical, and social well-being of all UBC Science students
  • Create and foster a sense of Science community
  • Promote good relations with other communities on campus
  • Represent the interests of Science students to the administration
SUS is YOUR student society. Every science student is a member of SUS and pays an annual fee that is used to run all the services, events, and grant programs that SUS offers. Our mandate is to promote the academic, physical, and social well-being of all science students, generate a measure of pride and spirit for our Faculty, provide services for our students, create and foster a sense of science community, promote good relations with other communities on campus, and represent our interests as students to the administration.

SUS provides a variety of grants and awards to assist students in engaging in personal and professional development opportunities, as well as sports rebates.

SUS also manages the programming in the Abdul Ladha Science Student Centre (ALSSC). The ALSSC is a shared social and study space that is dedicated to helping UBC Science students connect and learn outside of the classroom. The Centre was made possible by a generous gift from UBC alumnus and entrepreneur, Abdul Ladha, contributions from the UBC Informal Learning Space Fund, the Dean of Science, and UBC Science students. The ALSSC is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people.

Join a SUS Committee, run in Fall Council Elections, volunteer for events, and visit our office in Abdul Ladha Science Student Centre to meet and speak with your executives. Learn More
