Special Consideration Policy changes Report – 4 September 2020

Hannah Buchan, President


Today UMSU submitted a report to the University outlining its proposed amendments to the Special Consideration policy, which the University is seeking to make changes to that would ultimately disadvantage students to at a time when they’re needing it the most. You can read more about those changes here.


UMSU’s response to the proposed policy changes has been driven by feedback submitted by you in the wellbeing form that was launched last week, from the data we have collected from students who use our Advocacy Service, and from feedback gathered from students in August last year — the first time we fought (successfully) against these changes.
