State President – Braydon Broad

Hey everyone, my name is Braydon Broad and I am your State President for 2020.

This year my main priority is to work with you, your best friend, your ex – hell maybe even your goldfish to convince our university to abandon its support for the fossil fuel industry.

This is not to say I won’t have time for anything else. There’s a fair chance you’ll see me all over the place in the months to come. If you want to see something change at UTAS or you’ve got a problem you’re not sure how to solve, you can reach me at bjbroad@utas.edu.au or you can call me on 0429336920.

Yours sincerely,


Deputy President –  Joel Philpott

Hello, my name is Joel Philpott and I am your Deputy President for 2020.

This year I’m looking forward to working collaboratively with students to ensure that student rights are upheld and protected. The TUU will aim to ensure that students receive the best university experience possible. In 2020 the TUU will be rolling out key campaigns on issues that students can get behind tackling issues such as climate change, mental health and cheaper rent for students.

Please do not hesitate in reaching out to me with any concern you may have by emailing joelp1@utas.edu.au.

Thank you for your time!

Postgraduate President  – Position Vacant

Campus President, Cradle Coast – Shirene Munday

Hi, I am Shirene, your president at the Cradle Coast Campus.

My hopes and mission for the year is to bring students together, broaden everyone’s friendships and to create more inclusion. I hope to be your voice and to fight for your needs and rights.

Please contact me if there is anything you would like to discuss at mundays@utas.edu.au.

I value your input, if you have any great ideas for TUU then please forward them on:)

Campus President, North – Joji Kinivuwai

I am Joji Kinivuwai and I will be serving as your Campus President for 2020. I am studying Engineering at the AMC which I’ll be completing my final year. That means you will find me in the computer labs, at the bar complaining about my degree or at saltz getting the cheapest meal there is. So, feel free to join me in any of those fun activities. I am a simple person I see others struggle, I try my best to comfort them and I will always put your interest first. If you have any issues surrounding your study, well-being, your residence or you just need to talk to someone, definitely contact me at:

Campus President, South – Sophie Crothers

Hey everybody! My name is Sophie Crothers and I am your Campus President – South for 2020.

I am extremely passionate about ensuring student voices are heard by the wider community, and this year I will be working with you to create real change in our day to day lives. Using my previous experiences with collaborating with the university, I will work to ensure the best outcomes for students whilst being independently driven.

If you haven’t yet, please join the TUU South Facebook group! I will be your Moderator this year, it is a brilliant place to find out about what’s happening on your campus, ask questions and get to know fellow students! Other than the Facebook group and main TUU page, you can get in touch with me about any concerns, queries or feedback regarding your experience as a student based in Hobart at sophiec7@utas.edu.au. I can’t wait to get to know you and help represent your voice in our University!
