Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria University College, Wellington N.Z. Vol. 21, No. 6. May 28, 1958
As a national union, N.Z.U.S.A.'s main concern is with the interests and welfare of its membership. It has presented successful submissions for bursary increases, investigated conditions of entry of overseas students into the country, supervised the welfare of Hungarian refugee students in this country, presented submissions for the introduction of the course on Asian Studies in this country. It has pressed for some years, and is continuing to press, for the right to appoint a student representative to the University of New Zealand Senate. Currently, it is preparing submissions on proposed reforms in the tertiary institutions of education, and in light of the proposed Commission on Education to be set up in November, and to be chaired by Dr. Currie, will no doubt make detailed evidence to the Commission at that time.
