Recently there has been a lot of media attention surrounding AU’s task force on sustainability. With the release of the task force report, many were concerned that AU would have to close its doors. However, with all the doom and gloom of recent, AUSU Executives are happy to report that progress is being made towards a more sustainable university.
The AUSU executive team was able to recently meet with AU Executives including Dr. Peter McKinnon (AU Interim President) and Estelle Lo (AU Vice President, Finance and Administration). In these meetings, we discussed the task force report as well as the Alberta Tuition Freeze. As we discussed the impacts and actions being taken in regards to these issues, we learned that AU has had a short term win.
