You Sound Off
Last week I asked readers to sound off on recent controversies surrounding AUSU. Your answers are in this issue. I also have a fun assignment for next week.
Council reporters wanted
The Voice needs reporters who are able to write clear, critical and balanced reviews of what goes on at AUSU council meetings. Meetings take place about once a month, and may be attended by teleconference from almost anywhere in the world. Inquire with the Voice editor at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information on this opportunity.
I’ve been asked why I never run bios of AU tutors in The Voice. The reason is that AUSU already does these. Check out the AUSU tutor page at: http://www.ausu.org/tutor/index.php. A new tutor bio will be posted this week. If you know of a tutor you would like profiled, write Mac McInnis at email@example.com.
Student bios are another issue. We do run those, and love to get them! If you are an AU student, willing to be profiled in The Voice, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
