Student Representative Committee

Using the student voice to advocate for a better student experience.

Who Are We? 

The Student Representative Committee (SRC) represents the feedback on policies and services collected from each school via School-based Student Societies in order to improve your overall academic experience. We believe in working closely with UniSQ staff to ensure that all student voices are heard and that all students have a positive learning journey. 

What We Do? 

We act as your point of contact for the school community, encouraging communication between the school, university, and students. We collaborate with staff to enhance your learning journey, develop and implement solutions, and plan for the future. We also foster a sense of belonging and well-being by organising student-led activities.

Student Senate

Student Senate is UniSQ's highest student governed body, participating in university decision-making around learning and teaching, campus facilities, and other important student matters in the form of opinions, concerns, or recommendations, and they present these matters to the Dean (Students).

Student Representative Committee (SRC)

The Student Representative Committee (SRC) collaborates with academic and professional staff to enhance learning and teaching by using feedback from their School-based Student Societies (SbSS). Any unresolved or incomplete issues, ideas, or initiatives are escalated to the UniSQ Student Senate, where appropriate action is taken to address them.

School-based Student Societies (SbSS)

School-based Student Societies (SbSS) serve as a sense of community by connecting you with others who share your interests and academic goals. To enhance learning and teaching, the SbSS may be asked to submit feedback to the SRC.

Academic Student Representative (ASR)

An Academic Student Representative (ASR) is appointed or elected to a specific Academic or Governance University Committee to make valuable contributions to the development of academic policies, provide important feedback on academic services, and collaborate on the design and review of courses. Academic Student Representatives also partner with staff on the continuous improvement of the learning environment, pedagogy and the student experience. 

We're here to help if you have any questions, recommendations, or concerns you'd like us to address.  We value your participation in shaping our university community. Let’s work together to make a positive impact.
