SPSA EXECUTIVE COUNCIL UPDATE

As the official representative group for the student body, your SPSA Executive Council has been hard at work dealing with issues that affect student life. Recently, your Executive Council has requested a meeting with the Saskatchewan Polytechnic Senior Administration to discuss Textbook Affordability and Availability Practices. This includes encouraging the use of Open Educational Resources (OERs) and ensuring that the Campus Bookstores carry the required textbooks and supplies students need for their courses.

Your Executive Council has also been working with Sask Polytech to create inclusive safe spaces on all campuses. Executive Council members have also attended the Federal Student Advocacy Alliance (FSAA) meetings whose advocacy priorities include: fast tracking permanent residency for International students, increased post-secondary funding for Indigenous students, rural broadband access and federal student loan and grants reform.

Lastly, your Executive Council has been busy ensuring that the upcoming SPSA Election transpires in a democratic, impartial, fair, transparent and accountable way.
