USQ Academic and Governance representatives
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.
Elections are currently being held for the 2016 academic student rep positions. Make sure the right person to represent your voice is elected. Vote now via the voting panels in the bottom left of UConnect. Voting closes 5pm Friday, 28 August 2015.
