La Trobe Student Union update regarding 2020 funding

The LTSU has students’ best interest at heart, so we would like to update you on what’s happening at the organisation from a business perspective.

La Trobe University has formally contacted La Trobe Student Union to notify us that their funding allocation to the LTSU will be reduced by 50% for 2020. The University have stated this is due to external factors, predominantly the effect of COVID-19. Staff and students are working extremely hard devising a plan for the best way forward. We are grateful for all student support while we work through the potential effects these cuts may have on the organisation and how they may shape the future of LTSU.

As always, we are committed to continuing to deliver our strongest student voice, making sure that your issues and feedback is passed through the right channels and being heard. Student Welfare is a top priority, as seen in our financial support programs for students in need and students in crisis.
