The Near & Middle Eastern Civilizations Students’ Union is one of many course unions under the umbrella of the Arts & Science Students' Union, representing students studying in every department of the Faculty of Arts & Science at the University of Toronto. Our mandate is to serve as a liaison between students and the NMC department and to augment student life with fun, educational events.
In any given month we will host a social, academic seminar, general meeting, or movie night, all of which are listed on our Events page and Facebook page. We also work on your behalf if you have an issue with the department. Our chief goal is to help NMC students become engaged with their subject of study and feel that they are part of a larger community of students with similar interest.
We also try to bring together faculty and students studying the many diverse disciplines in the department, including religion, languages, history, and culture. We are always looking for new ideas and people that want to get involved.
