The EAUC is committed to playing an active role in shaping the policies and legislation which affects our members.  Our Advocacy role is to ensure that members' needs are met and that your voice is heard.

The EAUC expects to take a full role in consultations which directly affect universities and colleges in the UK. Where resources allow we also respond to wider environmental consultations. We do this through extensive dialogue with our Members in the sector.

Our consultation responses are listed below in the download section, most recent at the top.
