Petition Updates

  • Update from the UPSU Team

    An update from UPSU President, Helena Schofield:

    We consistently met with the Vice-Chancellor and his team regarding the implementation of a no detriment policy. After 3 weeks of lobbying this resulted in the success of the University implementing a number of no detriment practices including the ability of the board of examiners to disregard individual assessment marks taken during the pandemic that are out of line with the rest of the students’ assessment marks.

    The idea has been marked as Fast Tracked. The reason was: UAB felt that the idea was important to a large number of students and would be simple for the Union to implement with the resources currently available. Therefore the idea has been fast-tracked for immediate action.
