No Man Left Behind in New Study Launched by SDM

Posted On March 3, 2020

SDM launched a campaign in collaboration with 21 student organisations. The campaign entitled “No Right Brain Left behind” was launched yesterday evening.

The aim of the campaign is to listen to all university students, from all courses, who are having issues with their course. During initial meetings students from their respective organisations brought forward a long list of issues. One hot topic being that of the requirements to enter their course.

All of the issues mentioned and others will be placed into a survey which shall be launched next week on the 9th of March. Students are invited to take part so as to help SDM have a concrete idea of what needs to be tackled. 

During that week Third Eye and Insite shall be collaborating for a Vox Pop wherein the students’ opinions will also be heard in a different formant.

Once the data has been collected a debate shall be held on Quadrangle with several representatives from the Education sphere. Here the problems can be posed to the representatives and their opinions will also be voiced.

Lastly, a conference shall take place where students will, in groups, tackle the issues and try to come up with solutions to the problems. This will all lead up to a policy paper that shall be later drafted by SDM.
