In 2017, the ANU Academic Board signed the first partnership agreement between any Australian University and its student organisations.
Since then, ANUSA signed a revised Student Partnership Agreement for 2019.
The Partnership Agreement is all about improving students’ ability to provide feedback on our university experience.
The Agreement covers broad themes around student feedback from student surveys, feedback forums and existing university initiatives that ANU, ANUSA and PARSA have agreed to work on together.
But the Agreement also has key identified areas that all parties want to work on for student benefit. These include improving student-course representation, consulting with students on reforms around admissions, scholarships and accommodation, as well as other key areas of concern around student well-being and the student learning experience from undergraduate through to postgraduate coursework.
ANUSA President Eden Lim says that “This partnership provides an opportunity to collaboratively further student experience here at the ANU. It provides a platform that encourages discourse to occur between students and the University on strengthening the teaching and learning experience. It promotes an understanding between all parties to this agreement.”
The goals outlined in the Partnership Agreement guide some of the actions of the SRC. You can read the whole Agreement here.
The Student Partnership Agreement will be reviewed jointly by the ANU Academic Board, ANUSA and PARSA on an annual basis.
