Student Reps Bootcamp (Semester 1, 2021)

The UQ Student Reps Bootcamp was an intensive one-day workshop that provided student reps from 5 different faculties and 19 different schools the opportunity to share strategies, develop key transferable skills, and hear from executive academic leaders about the importance of their role. Reps developed plans of action to engage with staff members and students effectively and learned more about the different ways that they can be an agent for change at UQ.
