The glue that holds us together. You. Our students.
A working group of the UNE Life Board, The Student Advisory Committee is made up of elected representative students, and those students who have undergone an EOI process to advise the UNE Life Board, and UNE Life Student Experience, of where we should be focusing our attention and resources.
The UNE Student Advisory Committee is made up of the following positions;
Online Student Representative
College Academic Support Representative
College Pastoral Care Representative
College JCR Representative
UNE Life Student Director (or nominee)
What do we ask of you?
Whilst we love a good catch up (and that’s certainly part of what we look for, although we call it “measuring student sentiment”) the role of a SAC member has obligations. Essentially, we want you to provide valuable feedback to us on our services, not just from your experiences, but also the experiences of your fellow students.
This means talking to your cohorts about specific initiatives, areas that we can do better, and other problems that students might be experiencing whilst studying at UNE.
That’s for some items. For others, you’ll need to keep things between us and you. We talk quite openly in these meetings and because this is a working group of the UNE Life Board, there will be some agenda items that are to be treated as “commercial in confidence” and discussing these with others prematurely is a no-no.
To help you do all this, we’ll provide training and opportunities to help you be able to contribute personally. This might be governance training, student voice workshops, or specific conferences relevant to your area that we would like to send you on, so that you may report back to UNE students on what’s happening in Universities across Australia.
It’s a wonderful thing to be a part of and we encourage you to put your hand up if you’d like to contribute to the UNE student experience!

The University of New England respects and acknowledges that its people, programs and facilities are built on land, and surrounded by a sense of belonging, both ancient and contemporary, of the world’s oldest living culture. In doing so, UNE values and respects Indigenous knowledge systems as a vital part of the knowledge capital of Australia.
