Idea Title:

Should the university use its profits to reduce the impact of the removal of DSA on students?

 

What the idea is about:

LUU should lobby the university to take responsibility to support disabled students. At the moment the government have massively cut DSA funds to support disabled students and expect the university to replace these funds. With these changes LUU should lobby the university to make sure students’ needs are at the heart of decision making and do not cut back on support for disabled students.

 

Why have you proposed it?:

Disabled students should not have to pay more financially to experience the exact same degree as their peers. DSA cuts will limit funding to support students with technology, software, accommodation and even getting around campus. With the University earning more than the supermarket Tesco last year we should make sure they use their money to ensure disabled students can access the education they want.
