Get Ready to Vote on Aug 25!

The voting period for AUSU’s by-election is August 25 – 31. All AUSU members will be emailed a ballot on August 25. We have 8 candidates running for 4 vacant council seats.

Why should you Vote?

AUSU impacts your experience as a distance education student at Athabasca University – no matter where you live.

AUSU council guides and directs your students’ union in its mandate to provide services, support, and advocacy for AU students and is part of creating an online AU student community. The students YOU elect to council represent AU students at the institutional, provincial, and federal levels, and provide a voice to students when important decisions regarding your education are being made.
