The Ukrainian Canadian Students’ Union (SUSK) has launched the “Finding Belonging, Creating Leaders” campaign to ensure a strong and unified Ukrainian Canadian student body, and to develop the future leadership of the Ukrainian Canadian community.

The mission of SUSK is to be the voice for Ukrainian Canadian students and to support its member Ukrainian Students Organizations (USOs), where thousands of students find belonging and partake in various events.

Message from the SUSK President

Since its establishment in 1953, SUSK has upheld Ukrainian Canadian Youth across the country through project-based grants, events that fuel student engagement and opportunities that foster leadership skills. The Endowment fund allows us to ensure that we can support our 27 member Ukrainian Student Organizations and continue to engage Ukrainian Canadian youth to get involved in their communities. Your contributions to the SUSK Endowment fund invests in the Ukrainian Canadian youth and gives them opportunities to grow into the future leaders.

– Danya Pankiw

Message from the SUSK National Board of Directors

SUSK has a rich 68-year history as a cornerstone of the Ukrainian Canadian community. With more than 25 member organizations, hundreds of yearly members, and a paid staff member, SUSK provides resources to help with whatever a Ukrainian student club may need.

Today, we want to make sure that a strong, independent, Ukrainian Canadian Students’ Union can not only survive, but indeed thrive, forever. We encourage everyone to donate and be a part of this important campaign.

Message from the Shevchenko Foundation

We are very pleased that SUSK recognizes the benefits of partnering with the Shevchenko Foundation in ensuring that future goals of SUSK are met. SUSK has created a Designated Fund that will be managed by the Shevchenko Foundation, with an external oversight committee. By creating this Designated Fund, SUSK has shown a high degree of commitment to the future of its organization and our community.
