More than 80 active students attend OSA forum
More than 80 students actively engaged in extracurricular activities at American University of Sharjah (AUS) attended a forum held by the Office of Student Affairs (OSA) on September 22. The students represented various on-campus student groups including the sports teams, interest-oriented and ethnic clubs, community service volunteers, leadership groups, peer mediation coordinators and members of the Student Council.
The panel was headed by Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students, with her team of directors and managers from various OSA departments. Addressing the students, Dean Al Shehhi said, "The Office Student Affairs is here to enrich your university experience and complement your academic goals. It is our aim to fulfill your extracurricular endeavors whether in sports, cultural activities, leadership or community service. We conduct this forum every semester to maintain a healthy and productive communication with students. This is our platform to listen to your concerns so we can improve on our programs and services. Please do not hesitate to convey any issues or obstacles that you face. You are the new generation full of ideas; share your thoughts with us and rest assured of our full support for any valid concerns that you may have." Dr. Al Shehhi thanked the staff for all the work that they do to facilitate the extracurricular needs of the students.
The students highlighted concerns regarding activities, events, trips, facilities and processes, which were all addressed and clarified by the OSA team. The students expressed their appreciation for the new university facilities such as the sports pavilion and the newly renovated Student Center. In addition, the students conveyed their satisfaction to the non-academic student support services provided by OSA.
OSA organizes student forums at the beginning of each semester to discuss issues affecting student life and to further extracurricular activities in the university.
