Applications are open for the Semester 2, 2020 Student Representative Network for the following Committees: Victorian College of the Arts Learning and Teaching Committee, VCA Faculty Academic Committee, and Bachelor of Music Course Standing Committee. Applications for these committees can be made from students currently enrolled in VCA, VCA, and the Bachelor of Music course, respectively.
What is Student Representative Network (SRN)?
Have you ever wondered who makes the decisions that dictate what you study in your course, who teaches you, how many students there are in your class and how long the exam period is? Have you ever had issues with any of these things and wondered if there’s a way to change them? Then the Student Representative Network (SRN) is the place for you.
The SRN is a group of students that care about their education and want a say in the decision-making process. Students sit as voting student representatives on a University Committee and have a say in all the decisions made.
Students are supported by Student Governance Training provided by the UMSU Advocacy and Legal Department to understand and contribute to committees. The SRN holds regular meetings throughout the semester, during which Student Representatives report back on the issues discussed in their committee meetings and seek advice and input from other student representatives, to work towards positive change for all students.
Applications close 27 July.
