VUSU Student Symposium

The 2017 Student Symposium is a chance for staff and students at VU to open lines of communication, and to engage on issues at the forefront of the student experience. 

VUSU are currently seeking opinions and information from students to set the discussion points for the symposium to ensure it is relevant to the student experience. 

The aim of this event is to set the agenda for tackling student issues going into 2018. We believe the symposium is a great way to do this, as we will receive immediate feedback on these issues, and communication between students and staff will be open and honest. 

Keep updated on the changes to VU, both Architectually and Academicly!

The Symposium will be held in the VUSU Student Lounge, at Footscray Park, building M level 1.

Food and beverages wil be provided at the close of formal proceedings.

Please register for the symposium here: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/vusu-student-symposium-tickets-33071940063
