Advocacy Priorities – WUSA Long Range Plan
Below we highlight six advocacy themes, this is by no means an exhaustive list. These are the ones we have prioritized based on feedback from our members, Waterloo undergrads, which for us, makes them some of the most meaningful to address.
Continuing to work with all levels of government and university administration to build more and better housing to deliver safer, affordable housing to Waterloo students.
Between regulating tuition frameworks and identifying educational barriers unique to international students, we strive to create a momentous student experience.
Equity & Accessibility
Identifying barriers to access for all students to ensure full and safe participation in post-secondary education.
Recognizing and pushing for pragmatic steps the university can take to increase efficiency, increase value, and where possible, decrease fees.
Understanding campus-wide policy changes and investments that could benefit students, making clear that what is good for student educational outcomes are also good for the university.
Learning, growing, and continuing to make informed decisions based on the learning of navigating through a pandemic.
