Have a Say in the Future of Post-Secondary Education!


The Alberta Government is currently working on an Alberta 2030 report that will shape the future of post-secondary education. Since Athabasca University is an Alberta institution, changes made to the Alberta post-secondary system impact all AU students, no matter where they study from.

The government is currently accepting student feedback, which means YOU have an opportunity to help shape the future of your education. The Alberta Advanced Education Student Consultation Survey was developed to gather student views to inform the Alberta 2030 strategy.

In our latest AUSU Open Mic Podcast, President Natasha Donahue and VP External & Student Affairs Stacey Hutchings discuss their thoughts on the Alberta 2030 review and highlight the need for students to weigh in on it. It was also recorded live, so you can check it out in audio or video format!

We encourage all AU students to take the post-secondary review survey, whether you are from Alberta or out-of-province. It’s crucial for students to tell the government their views on post-secondary education at AU and across Alberta.
