How does active research work?
Our GOAT research questions come from the things that matter to students – we find these through:
- Student Feedback: SUBU receives feedback from students in a number of ways including from SimOn (Simple Online Tool), How's SUBU for you? and democratic meetings such as the Big Student Meeting. We review it all to find out what’s currently important to students and ask questions about that to help shape our work on an issue/topic.
- Elected Representatives: Elected representatives such as the full time officers are always working on projects that benefit the student experience and they often know about emerging student issues. Researching student opinions through the GOAT team is one way to enhance their work.
All of our results are published on our Discoveries page.
