Student Partnership Agreements - What one might look like...

Student partnerships represent a commitment on the part of the ANU to consistently and meaningfully engage with the student body at the ANU. A Student Partnership Agreement at the ANU represents a move within the Australian higher education sector toward student-centred learning, a shift that has already taken place in the international higher education sector.

ANUSA believes that a Student Partnership Agreement at ANU must go beyond a written agreement and include actions that amplify the student voice. The written agreement should consist of two components. Part A outlines not only the university’s commitment to working with students as partners to improve the university experience but a non-exhaustive list of means by which students can provide feedback and advocacy. Part B lists a series of areas that the ANU commits to working with the two student Associations on and is signed by the two Presidents and the Vice-Chancellor. It also should detail the outcomes of previous projects that the university has worked in partnership on with the student Associations. The written agreement (Part B in particular) is subject to annual or biannual review so that it remains relevant both in the avenues to have input as well as the issues that the ANU is working in partnership with the student body on.

ANUSA & PARSA successfully passed a paper at Academic Board to form a working group that would work towards a Student Partnership Agreement. Now ANUSA wants to hear from students about what sort of projects you want to see the student associations work in partnership with the ANU on. An example could be the Admissions, Scholarships & Accommodation Project. Please fill out the form linked below with your top 5 projects you'd like to see the university work to address.
