The Ryerson Communication and Design Society (RCDS) is a student-led society that represents all full-time undergraduate students within FCAD. 

The RCDS was started for students, by students, with the goal of uniting all programs in FCAD. The focus of the RCDS is to 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. 

The RCDS has established three pillars that provide direction for its initiatives:

Academic: providing educative experiences outside of the classroom;

Professional: facilitating networking and providing extracurricular experiences that make students stand out to employers; and

Collaborative: developing students' skills and facilitating connections by enabling cross-disciplinary projects that replicate the collaborative nature of communication and design industries.
