Four guiding pillars
Following the last year’s Union Vision, Dare to Care, NTUSU would like to formally present the 32nd NTUSU's Onwards & Upwards, with four guiding pillars – Culture, Welfare, Affordability, and Inclusivity.
This year, NTUSU aims to channel our efforts toward taking big swings for fellow students as we leave the pandemic behind and strive for greater things. These pillars have been the core of our strategically planned initiatives, events and ideas.
The Union places significant emphasis on the holistic development of our students, one beyond academic and professional success. We hope to build a NTU culture of prioritizing student life through vibrant initiatives, programmes and co-curricular activities. We also plan to provide students with more common spaces to make fun & meaningful connections.
We take a strong, multi-pronged approach to ensure the holistic welfare of students. This includes working towards academic, housing and transport policies that best fit student needs, as well as ramping up popular welfare initiatives such as giveaways and welfare packs. We strive to organize student activities that seek to engage and empower our students. Through effective communication, we aimed to better understand ground level issues as well.
NTUSU has and will always provide assistance to those with financial need – through student bursaries & grants. However, this issue is particularly strained by inflation and rising costs in University and on campus – be it food, university fees, housing or international programmes. This year, a primary goal of ours would be to tackle these rising costs and explore options for the University to alleviate this financial burden.
The Union has continuously pushed for the empowerment of our students by providing safe spaces for students to learn and grow. These platforms would highlight the importance of inclusion, self-respect, and respecting others – and stimulate discussion about how to do so. Key areas will include continued advocacy to strengthen mental health support, inclusive food options, respectful cultural exchanges, greater accessibility for those with special needs, & student safety on campus, amongst others.
