Become a student representative
Do you want to make a difference, pick up new skills and contribute towards decision making within USQ? Become part of the USQ picture and have a voice as a student representative.
At USQ, we have created positions in our university committees to allow you to represent your fellow students, and to ensure that students are considered in decision making processes.
Why should I become a representative?
Becoming a student representative will allow you to:
- become part of a group of active students that network with professionals at USQ
- contribute to decision making at USQ
- have a greater understanding of USQ processes and systems
- participate in professional development and training, and
- improve your graduate employability skills.
What will I be required to do?
As a student representative you will be required to understand the role of the committee on which you serve. Committees are set up for different reasons, and once elected there are certain duties you may have to undertake, including:
- attend and provide a voice for students at the scheduled committee meetings
- access meeting documents prior to meetings to ensure that you are well informed, and
- gather information required to ensure student representation at these meetings.
What committee will I be able to join?
Consult the list of available nominations to determine if you are eligible.
How do I become a representative?
Elections are usually held twice a year, at the beginning of semester one and two. Information on how to nominate and election dates are available.
Are there additional opportunities for elected student representatives?
Yes. Elected student representatives can nominate for a position on the USQ Student Forum.
