AUSU Advocates for YOU! 

Ever wondered what your AU Students’ Union does for you, as a distance education student?

In addition to offering awards, bursaries, services, and discounts to AU students around the world, one of the most important things AUSU does for you is advocacy!

Individual Advocacy

AUSU can help you with individual concerns related to your studies at AU. If you have a concern regarding your university experience, AUSU may be able to advocate on your behalf, or provide you with information to assist you in your communications with the university.

University Advocacy

AUSU represents AU students to the University administration to ensure that the student voice is heard. This includes regular meetings with AU Deans, VP’s, President, and other department heads, as well as providing student representation on the AU Board of Governors, General Faculties Council, and many other AU committees and working groups.

Provincial and Federal Advocacy

AUSU advocates on behalf of all AU students to the provincial and federal government for important topics such as increased funding, student loans programs, scholarships, fair accessibility to quality education, and many other topics important for students.
