NEW AUSU Strategic Plan
AUSU council is in the process of developing a new 3-year strategic plan! The strategic plan is the master plan for the AU Students’ Union, addressing our overall organizational objectives as a whole (in accordance with AUSU bylaws).
Your Students’ Council will provide an overview of the Strategic Plan at our August council meeting, along with the first reading of the proposed motion to approve it. The motion will read as follows:
- “Be it resolved that AUSU council adopt the 2020-2023 strategic plan as presented.”
Want to hear more? Come to AUSU’s August council meeting!
- Date: Wednesday, August 19, 2020
- Time: 6:30 pm MDT (8:30pm EDT / 5:30 pm PDT)
All members are welcome to attend AUSU’s monthly council meetings, which are held online through Zoom.
There is also an opportunity to ask questions or provide feedback to the Student Council. The meeting information will be posted on our website here at least 3 business days prior to the meeting.
We will post the new strategic plan soon – stay tuned!
One week Left to Run for Student Council!
AUSU currently has 4 vacant seats on council, so we will be holding a by-election on August 24, 2020!
If you are interested in advocating for students, being a part of an amazing team of AUSU staff and councillors, and creating an AU student community, then run for AUSU council!
Any AUSU member can run for council, no matter where they live or what they study. Since AU students are all distance learners, councillors can work remotely from all over the world, and most council work is done through email and teleconference.
What do AUSU councillors do?
AUSU councillors represent AU undergraduates students and advocate on their behalf. They also guide and direct the students’ union organization through its mission, vision, and values. Councillors attend council and committee meetings by teleconference, develop strategic plans, policies, bylaws, an annual budget, and more. Councillors serve for a 2-year term. Since this is a by-election, the newly elected councillors would serve until April 2022.
