The York University Community Safety Council (CSC) is an advisory body with a focus on safety outcomes, practices and policies. Reporting to the President, the Council is inclusive of all parties in the communities in and around York University who share a concern for safety broadly defined (including, but is not limited to, issues specifically relating to women and transpeople, concerns about the physical environment and violence prevention). The Council works collaboratively and proactively to amplify issues, facilitate coordination of safety related activities, focus attention of relevant administrative bodies and provide a forum for discussion of emerging challenges relating to safety.
