The Ryerson Communication and Design Society (RCDS) is a student-led society that represents all full-time undergraduate students within the Faculty of Communication and Design (FCAD). The RCDS was started for students, by students, with the goal of uniting all programs in FCAD. We provide collaborative programming and networking opportunities that allow students to forge new relationships, gain industry contacts and learn new skills that will last a lifetime.

We have three pillars…

ACADEMIC

Focusing on education beyond simply fulfilling academic requirements

PROFESSIONAL

Creating networks with industry and generating experience that will make students stand out to employers

COLLABORATIVE

Developing multi-faceted skills and connections by enabling cross-disciplinary projects that replicate the collaborative nature of the creative industries
