Manifesto

Over the years, I have learnt a lot from my experiences at the UoP and I believe that this knowledge is what makes me the ideal person to represent you. As a PALS leader, I support undergraduate students and help them achieve their academic goals whatever they may be. This role requires me to be organised, lead planned sessions and communicate effectively with my students. Before the opening of the new Student Hub in the library, I was invited to attend a Student Focus Group in order to highlight some key areas for improvement. Due to my interactions with many students as a PALS leader, I was quickly aware that students wanted the new Student Hub to feel open, welcoming and not be in a clinically enclosed space. 

As your representative, I endeavour to:

  • Work closely with the SU to ensure that students can anonymously contact course reps, school reps and part-time officers about specific ideas for improvement related to their faculty (e.g. Faculty of Health). This can be done by launching an online platform that will allow all relevant parties to read and respond to responses quickly and efficiently. 
  • Create awareness about students’ rights by adding a list to the ‘Your Voice’ section on the mobile app. Currently, there is a lack of awareness that it is in the UoP’s policy for lecturers to record lectures for students to access on the DLE at any time.
  • Work closely with the Faculty of Health to ensure that students on an optional placement year are aware of hidden course costs. For example, travel expenses are not currently free for students. 

I believe that I have the experience, determination and motivation to improve the learning experience for current students and I hope to implement changes that may benefit future students.
