Hey everyone, I’m the OUSU rep for this year, and I’ll be updating you all of goings on to make sure you’re all informed and aware of what OUSU actually does. Please drop me an email if you want to get involved or have any questions – OUSU is a student union to represent you.
Report from 1st OUSU council meeting of term:
Today we passed the motion opposing the Vice Chancellor’s recent comments which outlined his support in encouraging Oxford to charge £16,000 tuition fees. This was proposed and passed in our JCR on Sunday. There were also reports from the president and committee about the work they’d been doing, which you can find here.
If anyone wants to get involved in OUSU, please do! Meetings are fortnightly, so just let me know if you want to come along to speak, vote or propose a motion :-)
Get involved with OUSU campaigns!
