UNIVERSITY OF YO

YUSU WORK TO ENGAGE STUDENTS THROUGH REPRESENTATION TO LEAD THEIR ACADEMIC EXPERIENCE.

STUDENT REPRESENTATION ON SENATE With low student engagement with University Senate a review found that adapting how student reps are nominated to Senate could improve engagement, moving away from a cross campus ballot. Following this review YUSU Department reps will now elect 3 fellow Department reps to sit on Senate, building engagement through their regular interactions as a team and with their Course reps.

FACULTY BOARDS Following the establishment of Faculties at the University YUSU ensured students are represented on Faculty Boards. Faculty boards now have a robust method of student representation, with 1 Department Rep, 1 graduate student rep and the YUSU Academic Officer.

YUSU Student Representatives also share insight for the Periodic Reviews, providing valuable insights into the direction students wish their department to take.
