Registration open for MSU's semi-annual Policy Conference
October 16, 2017 at 09:00 am
On November 5, the MSU will host its semi-annual Policy Conference, to be held inside TwelvEighty from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. This event is an opportunity for students to provide their input and help formulate the final draft of policies that the MSU will use to advocate for institutional change.
The purpose of the MSU is to represent students and advocate for their interests. This is done by creating policies. These policies are used to explain the MSU’s stance on specific student issues, demonstrate the impact these issues have on students, and provide possible solutions. In order to best represent the students, the MSU hosts Policy Conference to ensure the policy stances that the MSU adopts best represent student need.
This year, there are three policies being review at the fall Policy Conference: Academic Success, Health & Wellness, and Experiential Learning. The policy on academic success focuses on improving the overall academic experience at McMaster. The health and wellness policy addresses student needs with regards to on-campus health services and resources. The goal of the experiential learning policy is to discuss the integration of experiential learning opportunities and improve students’ experiential learning experiences.
Please note that this event is open to all MSU students, with and without any prior experience reviewing policy. At the conference there will be a training session to ensure all attendees are equipped with the tools to provide feedback on the policies. In addition, both breakfast and lunch will be provided for attendees of the Policy Conference. If you are interested in providing feedback on any of these policies, please register to attend be at msumcmaster.ca/policycon.
