  3. Association awareness
  4. EDI and accessibility

Student issues – the most recent issues raised and how those will be actioned

Achievements – so you can see what happens with the issues that are raised

We need you! – this gives you – our students – the chance to engage on issues that will impact you during your time as an OU student.
