To form our advocacy goals for the upcoming year, we need feedback from our membership!

Here are some examples of ideas we have received from students like you!

  • Tired of staring at my screen all day because of etext.  Wish I could choose a real textbook #AUGoals.
  • Loving the flexibility with AU exam options. Looking forward to seeing what is next. #AUgoals
  • It would be great if my tutor ever got back to me. #AUGoals
  • I wish all my courses looked the same in moodle. #AUGoals.
