First UCA Student Charter signed
The Students' Union and Leadership Team at the University for the Creative Arts (UCA) gathered this week (1 October 2012) to sign the first Student Charter.
The Charter, which has been drafted jointly by the Students' Union and the University, is a mutual agreement summarising what students can expect to receive from UCA and what they can expect in return.
It focuses on the principles of creativity, distinctiveness, mutual respect and community.
Professor Mark Hunt, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, said: "The Student Charter marks an important step for UCA in making a visible commitment to the student experience and in working very closely with the students' representative body, the Students' Union.
"The Charter represents a clear opportunity to work in partnership with our students to ensure that the highest quality learning experience is delivered and to prepare them for their futures careers."
Luke Frost, UCA Students' Union, said: "The Student Charter is recognition that building an excellent place to study and work can only come through real partnership and dialogue between the University, staff and students.
"Student democracy, voice and opinion has shaped the Union's contribution to the Charter and, alongside Course Reps and Student Council, it clearly shows we have a say in improving student life at UCA."
The Charter, which was signed by UCA's Leadership Team and Students' Union Campus Officers, will go on display at each campus.
