Even if you don’t have strong feelings about faculty-specific issues at the moment, being a student rep on your faculty board is a great way to learn more about how the University operates.

First of all, it’s important to give the students in your Faculty the right to be heard in these meetings. This part of the role is generally as much as you make it. If you want to get a better sense of who you’re representing, you can encourage more student interaction by surveying students about issues being raised at Faculty Board. But you don’t always have to have a particular angle you’re pushing, or issues you’re looking out for – you’re still there for the purposes of “keeping them honest”. It’s still valuable to have a student voice at the meetings – in fact, it’s astounding how much difference it makes just to stick up your hand and remind them we’re here.

On a personal level, you get a better understanding of what’s going on at the University. Tertiary education is changing, and it’s really interesting to learn more about the competing interests involved. It also doesn’t hurt for the CV, either.

Nominations close on Monday 20 August. For more information, visit the elections website. To nominate, contact the administration office of your school or faculty.
