Student Representative Council

Breadcrumbs

The Student Representative Council (SRC) consists of USC students who are chosen to represent their fellow students and act as a key source of communication between the student body and the University. The SRC reports to the Vice-Chancellor and President. Its members consult with fellow students to discuss emerging views, suggestions and issues about learning, teaching and student services, and present their ideas to USC senior staff.

The role of the Student Representative Council is to:

  • represent the student community and act as a communication channel between the University and the student community
  • actively contribute to University decision making in promoting a positive student experience
  • inform the Vice-Chancellor and President about emerging issues for students (within its terms of reference)
  • provide input into the development of policies and services that support students and advance the quality of learning and research activities
  • encourage student feedback and share University initiatives resulting from student feedback

How to connect with your SRC

The Student Representative Council meets at least four times per year and its members are available to help, inform and advise the student community all year round.

Student Forums – Have your say!

The Vice-Chancellor and President (VCP) holds two all-student forums each year to share information about University strategy and operations with the student community. Each forum is also an opportunity for students to share and discuss matters that are important to them with the University Executive.

The SRC encourages all students to participate and engage with the Student Forums.

Check the Campus life events page for dates of Student Forums in 2017.
