About UMSU


In 1906 a students' union was organized as part of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. In 1907 the Student Representative Council was organized by the University Council, but it was not until 1919 that the University of Manitoba Students' Union (UMSU) was officially sanctioned. The UMSU Constitution, written in 1940, featured the following objectives: to supply students with extra-curricular activities; to facilitate personal contracts; to keep students informed on UMSU decisions; to bring the University into closer contact with the public; to attain continuity of student government; to act as an effective lobby to the Provincial government; to make academic proposals; and to work for the erection of a students' building. In 1975, UMSU was incorporated by a provincial statute. UMSU is the largest student organization in Manitoba and has numbers in excess of 26,000 graduate and undergraduate student members.

People once involved with the Union include television personality Monty Hall, former Chancellor Arthur Mauro, current Chancellor William Norrie, Harold Buchwald of the lawfirm Pitplado and Israel Asper of Canwest Global . The list of influential UMSU Alumni will continue to grow, adding to the diversity and stimulus of our society.

UMSU advocates on behalf of students to all levels of government involved with Post-secondary education - Federal, Provincial, Municipal and Administration. UMSU also offers numerous services including a health and dental plan, campus radio, tutor registry and scholarships and bursaries for its members. The expanding and continuing success of the businesses includes the UMSU Digital Copy Centre, GPA's Convenience Store, Archives Used Bookstore, IQ's Cafe and Billiards, Degrees Restaurant and The Hub Campus Pub. The businesses supplement UMSU's annual revenues and add to the opportunity to better serve students. For more information on UMSU visit their website at www.umsu.ca.

In July 1993, the Digital Copy Centre was relocated from the 3rd floor of University Centre to its present location to meet the photocopy requirements of the University of Manitoba. This long time, solid relationship has enabled UMSU and the University faculties/administration to associate as a community.

The Digital Copy Centre provides the highest quality printing services, delivery and turnaround times to the University of Manitoba. We also ensure the utmost convenience is provided to the University of Manitoba in regards to their printing services. We have worked very hard to attain a standard "turn-around-time" for the University of Manitoba. We have extended our hours (as deemed necessary) to complete many urgent University of Manitoba orders. The Digital Copy Centre is confident that we offer reasonable, fair prices for quality service. We do random checks of our competitors to ensure we are offering the best possible prices to our customers without sacrificing our quality service.

UMSU's mission is to employ as many University of Manitoba students as possible. Due to the nature of the work at the Digital Copy Centre, student employees have learned job skills that they will take with them when they leave the university.

UMSU's Digital Copy Centre specializes in producing course manuals, lab manuals, course notes etc.
