The Undergraduate SSLC Report

The SSLC UG Annual Report

Over the summer, I went through all the minutes of every Student Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC) from last year and compiled a report to be submitted to the University with the key issues that were raised at SSLCs across all departments.

SSLCs are the most important way that students can shape their academic experience at Warwick and help improve their course for everyone. I should note that, from going through the minutes, the vast majority of the problems brought to SSLCs were discussed in a collaborative manner and solutions were found. The issues raised in this report are those which require greater change than just at a departmental level - e.g. timetabling problems, lecture recording or venue overcrowding.

The report also highlights the importance of SSLC minutes. The minutes detail the discussions between students and the department, and they’re how the Education/Postgraduate Officers and Faculty Representatives track ongoing issues. 

One example of how important SSLC minutes are can be found in last year’s Chemistry records. From reading the minutes, I noticed that students were raising concerns over the lack of desks when the Arts Centre Cinema was being used as a lecture venue.  I got in contact with the University and was able to secure clipboards that will now be provided for lectures held in the Arts Centre Cinema.

In short, don’t suffer in silence if there’s a problem with your course - check out the SSLC portal for the minutes of previous SSLC meetings and the details of your Course Rep at http://www.warwicksu.com/sslc/
