About your Education Council

President 

The prime concern for students while at University is their education, its quality and accessibility. Student representatives from the Tasmania University Union provide a student voice on a variety of University committees, relating to learning and teaching, student complaints and discipline, campus space and other matters of student interest. The Education President convenes a statewide Education Council and Education Council Executive to provide policies relating to education issues that are representative of the whole student body, and ensure that student representatives on committees are directly accountable to students. Education Council policy will be non-partisan and objective, and will relate to internal university plans concerning students, and federal, state and local government policy relating to Higher Education. The Education President may also instigate projects beyond their portfolio, subject to their individual interest and wider Council approval.
