The Clubs and Societies Committee is deputised to administer the C&S Program under ratification of the USU Board. The C&S Committe works alongside the Clubs and Societies office to administer the C&S program and write the C&S Handbooks, Funding model and Regulations.
The C&S Committee will review and approves the following C&S forms/applications:
- New Clubs or Societies Applications

The Committee aims to provide fair and equitable funding, and to ensure that the Clubs and Societies in the C&S Program maintain the standards set out in the C&S Regulations.
The C&S Committee is chaired by a USU Board Director elected by the Board, with another Board Director elected as Deputy Chair. There are up to eight ordinary members who are appointed by the Board in the year prior, with two New Committee members being appointed during April of each year.
