AUSU Student Advocacy

Did you know that advocacy is one of the most vital roles of a students’ union? Advocacy is vital in order to ensure transparency and accountability on behalf of the institution and the government, and advocate for affordable, accessible, quality post-secondary education for students. AUSU advocates for AU students in a variety of ways:

Individual Advocacy – Your academic concerns are important to us! Contact AUSU if you have concerns about AU services or procedures that you feel are detrimental to your student experience.

University Advocacy – AUSU advocates for all AU students at the University level, including holding seats on over 20 AU committees and the AU Board of Governors, and regularly meets with various AU VP’s, Deans, and Directors to discuss issues important to AU undergraduate students.

External Advocacy – AUSU advocates for all AU students at the provincial and national levels for topics such as increased educational funding, equitable student loans programs, scholarships and bursaries, and other student issues. AUSU is also a member of the Canadian Alliance of Students’ Associations (CASA) which helps AU students have a voice with the federal government.
