The Students Union and University are undertaking a review of all their student-facing policies and procedures.
This is, in part, a response to some recent high profile cases regarding sexual harassment, hate crime, disciplinaries, and complaints. As well as inviting lawyers to review the procedures, we would like there also to be student input as we believe this is a fundamental part of bettering our policies and ensuring students are at the center of these.
The Students' Union and University are therefore running a student focus group to feedback any concerns, issues, opinions, and experiences that students have of the Students' Union's and University's current student-facing policies and procedures. This will be attended and chaired by Sara Elkhawad (Students' Union's Welfare and Equality Officer) and Lucy Backhurst (Newcastle University's Academic Registrar).
The focus group will run in the Students' Union in the Planning Room (1st floor, SU) on the 27th of Feburary at 12-1pm. There is limited space available so this will be given on a first-come-first basis. Refreshments will be provided.
Confirm your attendance via the Facebook group or alternatively email Sara at firstname.lastname@example.org, along with any accessibility requirements.
Come along and make sure your voice is heard in our review processes!
