Annual General Meeting

1pm on 23rd August 2022 - see OUSA AGM on Facebook for more information. 

Join us in the Main Common Room to chat about OUSA at our Annual General Meeting. All students are welcome, and we'd love to hear your thoughts, feelings, complaints, or just have you there to vote on some of the important decisions OUSA makes and hear what we have to say.

In case that wasn't enough of a reason to attend: we are also giving away a flat feed of up to $200 at Mela Eatery to a student who attends the entire AGM- bring online your flatties to increase your chance to win!


Online Referenda and Student Forums

Online referenda are one of the many ways you can have your say through OUSA. Whether it's about university policy or a wider issue, you can change OUSA's stance.

Online referenda are used to guide OUSA policy; it's a direct online vote allowing every University of Otago student to have their say.

Student forums provide an opportunity for students to discuss the questions that will be in the Online Referenda. You can also submit your own questions/motions for online referenda. For example, if you think OUSA should support or oppose mandatory veganism, you can submit a referendum question so that students can have a say.

How to move a motion

For more information contact secretary@ousa.org.nz or refer to the OUSA Constitution.


Reviews

We want to make sure that OUSA provides the best possible service and value to students so we'll be looking at the way we do things all the time to see how we can do better. Keep an eye out on the OUSA website, facebook and Critic to see what we're looking for feedback on.


Class Reps

The class representative system is an avenue for encouraging communication and consultation between staff and students. Class Reps help to resolve issues that affect the entire class (or many students) and give students the chance to give both positive and negative feedback on their courses. For more info on Class Reps, click here.
