As a representative body for all University of Melbourne students, UMSU is for everyone. We are run for students, by students, and our aim is to make sure your time at university is as enjoyable, engaging and well-supported as possible. As the General Secretary, I invite all students to actively engage with us, to find out what it can offer you and how you can contribute to this vibrant community. It is my role to ensure that UMSU remains true to its aims, and is run in an effective, transparent and inclusive manner.
We are governed by an elected students’ council, which meets regularly, and meetings are open to all students. Departments of UMSU also hold their own committee meetings and collectives, providing all students with a chance to have their say in the direction and activities of the student union. Meeting details can be found here: umsu.unimelb.edu.au/students-council
A warm welcome to all new students, and welcome back to those returning. I hope your time at university and your involvement with UMSU is as fulfilling and enjoyable as mine has been.
UMSU General Secretary
