uAlberta students oppose changes to Lister Centre

July 25, 2012

In response to the University of Alberta's announcement this week about changes to its Lister Centre residence complex, the students' union says it was not consulted on the proposal. The students' union president says the lack of consultation is in direct contradiction to a 2009 MOU signed between the university and the Lister Hall Students' Association. Student-staffing changes entail the elimination of the elected positions of floor coordinators and floor VPs, to be replaced with residence assistant and senior residence assistant roles. The students' union argues that "these changes fit with the University’s increasing tendency to marginalize the student voice, and will allow the University to ignore student concerns further." uAlberta Students' Union News
