RGU Union is aiming to build on previous success by implementing two new themes as part of the Student Partnership Agreement this year.
The themes will focus on improving the provision of student timetables, as well as assessment and feedback.
Edward Pollock, President of Communication and Democracy, said: “We are going to be working with staff across the university to define what a student vision for good feedback and good timetables is, and then work with the university to really drive forward change.”
The Student Partnership Agreement is a partnership between RGU Union and the University, aimed at improving the student life at the Uni. It attempts to empower students by creating a structure where feedback can ‘travel’ upwards, from student representatives to school officers, all the way up to the Union Presidents/University Principal-regardless of whether it’s an individual issue or a part of one of the major “themes”.
The goals and objectives of the agreement are divided into two categories: “Enhancement Objectives” are the themes of the agreement each year-last year the main theme was “building social atmospheres”, which involved picnic benches on campus for example. “Development Objectives” aim to improve the agreement itself. (Even this article could count, since it’s technically spreading the word about the agreement!)
The Union aims to have a plan in place for implementing changes by the end of the year, and more materials are going to be sent out about the agreement too-so keep an eye out for them!
