Students' Association


The School of Community and Public Affairs Students' Association (SCPASA, is the representative body for all undergraduate students of the School. All of our students are enrolled in the School's Major in Community, Public Affairs and Public Policy. The SCPASA plays an active role in the good governance of Concordia University's undergraduate affairs as an ASFA (Arts and Science Federation of Associations) Member Association in good standing.

The SCPASA encourages its students to get involved in the classroom, on campus, and in the community-at-large. For its strong community ties and outward focus, demonstrated through a long history of student activism and community involvement, the SCPASA stands out as an exemplary student association. The SCPASA has consistently benefitted from strong faculty support for student-led initiatives.

The day-to-day functioning of the SCPA Students' Association includes a non-hierarchical organisational structure, a consensus-based decision-making model and a core group of elected Coordinators. The SCPASA is proud to host a space dedicated to its students; this Lounge acts as a welcoming and cozy environment allowing first, second, third, and graduated students to add to the School's vibrant mix.
