In the past year, AUSU has advocated on behalf of students for improved communications from AU, removal of retroactive program changes, revisions to the academic misconduct policy, e-text choice and cost-savings sharing, shorter marking times, improved contact with tutors and academic experts, and more.

To form our advocacy goals for the upcoming year, we need feedback from our membership!

Here are some examples of ideas we have received from students like you!

Tired of staring at my screen all day because of etext. Wish I could choose a real textbook #AUGoals.

Loving the flexibility with AU exam options. Looking forward to seeing what is next. #AUgoals

It would be great if my tutor ever got back to me. #AUGoals

I wish all my courses looked the same in moodle. #AUGoals.
