Each commission has a mandate to put on education programs each quarter, as well as serve and advocate for its constituency within the student government and the administration. The QSC seeks to put on programming within an anti-oppressive framework, focusing on planning events that are all at once nonhetero- and cisnormative, anti-racist, anti-ableist, and anti-sexist.
