What is Committee Representation?

UQ committees are a platform through which staff members make key decisions on the student learning experience. The membership of these commmittees is often predominantly school and faculty staff, but students are often invited to be a part of these groups. Student representation on university committees is a vital way for staff members to work in partnership with students when making key decisions that have a profound impact on the student experience at UQ. Inviting students to be a part of these committees demonstrates a true committment to the student voice.
