Dear Students,

What does the SRC do?

Every day at universites and state/federal parliaments, discussions take place and decisions are made that affect your student experience. UNSA is host to the University's Student Representative Council (SRC), the peak representative body for students, whose members either take part in these discussions or are called upon to respond and contribute to them.
The SRC is your voice, speaking out on your behalf and raising relevant concerns. 
If you become aware of any issues that adversely affect UON students, then reach out to your SRC.

A message from the departing 2023 UNSA President,

Georgie Cooper

Being part of the SRC is a unique opportunity to develop your leadership and advocacy skills and to put them into action, helping to implement positive change for UON students. Being elected as an SRC member literally gives you a seat at the table of UNSA’s governance, strategic planning, and input into events and services for students. You’ll get to meet and collaborate with students from all walks of life, and to champion the feedback of your cohort both within and beyond the University. And importantly, have a lot of fun along the way working with the incredible UNSA team!  


I’ve been part of the SRC for almost 3 years as a Vice-President and now President. In this time, I’ve learnt so much and had the chance to work with so many inspiring people. I put my nomination in with the goal of helping to foster the strong student community I’d discovered at UON and to get involved in student leadership. I’ve gained so much confidence from stepping out of my comfort zone, to now doing things like meeting with the Vice-Chancellor and talking on local radio stations to advocate for students.  


I’d encourage anyone wanting to get involved with what UNSA does to put yourself out there and nominate for a position! There is a heap of support and training provided to help SRC members succeed in their role and to achieve their goals. This is your chance to make your mark and create real change for students, so what are you waiting for?
