As we enter the Students Association's 50th Year in 2022, we want to ensure we are as accessible and representative as possible for all OU Students.

After an external, robust review of our Governance commissioned by the Open University Students Association Board of Trustees, we believe making a positive change for all OU Students is crucial to the success of our Association.

The proposed changes are made up of five resolutions that students will have the chance to vote on at the OU Students Association Conference in 2022.

We want OU students to become even more involved in and engaged with the work we do to support you. This is why we’re proposing the governance reform resolutions. We've created this video to further explain why these changes have been proposed.
