Student Feedback

At MNU, we seek students’ feedback through interactive feedback sessions as part of the Student Voice Policy in accordance with the Quality Assurance Policy. These feedback mechanisms include:

Student Feedback Panel

The student feedback panel is a central-level panel. Through these panel meetings, we collect input on services, enhance the student experience, and support policy development. Student voices drive quality improvement and align with the Student Voice Policy.

This panel involves MNU Student Union (MNUSU), Student Support Services (SSS), and the Policy and Quality Control Unit (PQCU).

The meetings are co-organized by MNUSU Wings, PQCU, and SSS, with PQCU administrative support. The panel meets three times each term.
