The Social Justice Committee (SJC) is charged with the responsibility for ensuring that any programs and practices that the University engages in with the wider community are consistent with the enlightened principles of equity, social justice and inclusiveness. The SJC meets five times per year and reports annually to the Vice-Chancellor through the Vice-Chancellor's Committee.
The SJC receives advice and recommendations from the following five specialist standing committees:
The SJC also supports and receives advice from the Student Equity Community of Practice (SECoP). The SECoP's key focus is to facilitate an awareness and understanding of student equity issues at USQ, and to inform and enhance individual and institutional practice via research, expert advice and knowledge sharing.
Membership of the SJC includes two student representatives appointed for a two year term of office. Information on how to become a student representative is available from Student Services.
