The MSU Policy Conference is an opportunity for students to provide their perspective and feedback on the issues that the MSU is asking of the University and all levels of government.
Students need not be experts on these topics - people simply need to be willing to participate in the conversation. Delegates for the conference will be provided with draft policies in advance of the conference for an opportunity to learn more about each topic. As well, training will be provided on conference day to ensure that delegates have an understanding and the tools needed to critically engage in discussions with eachother and with the policy authors.
In addition to policy discussion, there will also be an opportunity for students to learn about how the MSU advocates, how to get involved further with advocacy on campus, and to hear from guest speakers.
This term, the papers being discussed are:
