About

Resist • Dismantle • Reimagine

ESSU is the student arm of the Critical Studies in Equity and Solidarity department at the University of Toronto. We largely function to spread awareness about the program across the university.

We also focus on advocacy, and our projects respond to current events happening in the world as well as what the executives tend to be interested in. For the last few years, we have focused on student mental health in response to the mental health crisis on campus. In years prior, we focused on food and food security on campus. Recently, we have collaborated with faculty, staff, and other students to address the University's response to the climate crisis as members of the Divestment & Beyond coalition.
