Established in January 2011, the CSSS represents every student in the Faculty of Science. Science students are automatically a member of the society and have the opportunity to participate in meetings, discussions, and run for executive or representative positions.
We are proud to represent science students and their departmental societies to the Faculty of Science, Carleton University, and on a provincial level through our membership in the Ontario Science Student Association.
The Carleton University campus that we call home, is located on the traditional, unceded territories of the Algonquin nation.
We recognize the Algonquin peoples as the traditional custodians of the land on which we learn & study. We want to encourage all of our peers to acknowledge the First Peoples on whose traditional territory we rely so heavily on. Acknowledging territory shows recognition of, and respect for the host nation, the Omàmiwininìwag (That means the Algonquin peoples, in the Algonquin language).
As science students, we are curious and inquisitive! We encourage you to reach out to local Indigenous communities and learn about the shared history and separate histories of First Nations, Inuit and Metis peoples and Canadians.
