Why should Your Vote for Student Council?
AUSU has an impact on your experience as a distance education student at AU, no matter where you study from, what program you are in, or how involved you are with the Students’ Union.
AUSU council guides and directs your students’ union in its mandate to provide services, support, and advocacy for AU students, and is a part of creating an online AU student community.
There are a lot of important topics for AUSU council to focus on in the upcoming two years, including:
- AU tuition increase of 7% for 20-21, with potential 7% increases for 2 more years
- New AU Virtual Learning Environment with major online infrastructure changes
- Service standards and timelines at Athabasca University
- Relevance and competitiveness of distance education
The students you elect to council will be sitting at the table with AU administration and meeting with government officials, influencing the decisions being made regarding these important topics.
Your vote helps determine who sits on council and impacts YOUR AU experience.
Ballots will be emailed to all AUSU members on February 25. Voting closes on March 2, 2020 (12pm MT). Make sure to vote for YOUR student representatives on council!
