AUS events and activities discussed at student forum
A series of student forums for representatives of student groups actively engaged in extracurricular activities were held during the month of February in the AUS Student Center.
Organized by the Office of Student Affairs (OSA), the forums were held in four sessions during which students raised their concerns about events and activities and improvement of university services and facilities, among other topics. Over 300 students participated in the forums and represented various student groups, including the Student Council, the Student Leadership Program, clubs and organizations, sports teams, Community Services, and the Peer Mediation Program.
The forums were attended by Dr. Thomas Hochstettler, Acting Chancellor; Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs; and other senior OSA officials.Dr. Hochstettler shared his thoughts and views with the Student Council members regarding the issues they raised. He also encouraged them to speak about both the positive and negative aspects of the student life in AUS.
"These forums strengthen the trust we want to build between the Office of Student Affairs and our students, we want to open communication channels that enable our students to raise their concerns and share their thoughts and views," said Dr. Al Shehhi. "We also seek to assess the effectiveness of our programs in satisfying our student needs through these forums," she added.
Student forums are organized every semester to give students the opportunity to discuss issues concerning student life and extracurricular activities at AUS. The forums also allow students to ask questions, propose ideas, and share thoughts and viewpoints about student services on campus.
