Hello and welcome to the April edition of the SRC Newsletter. Here’s a
rundown of what the SRC has been up to recently.
Women’s Day Celebration:
The SRC participated in the Women’s Day celebration, and we had a stall where
we engaged with attendees and gave out merchandise. We also held a raffle
with 56 participants, with 2 lucky winners.
Voice to Parliament Panel:
The Voice to Parliament panel was an opportunity for the SRC to participate in
discussions about critical issues affecting Australia. We were given the
opportunity to give our opinions and thought on the referendum which will be
later this year. Our President acted as one of the moderator of the panel, and
our Vice-President and University Council representative provided valuable
insights and perspectives as part of the panel.
New Faculty Board Members:
We are currently looking for representatives in several positions working with
the SRC. These include the Faculty of Arts and Design – Postgraduate, Faculty
of Business Government and Law – Postgraduate, and Faculty of Education –
Undergraduate. We encourage students who are interested in these positions
to reach out to the SRC for more information ([email protected])
Town Hall Meeting:
The town hall meeting focused on AI and its impact on education. It provided an
opportunity for UC and students to explore the role of AI in shaping the future
of education. Nine thought-provoking questions were raised by the students,
and ten students actively participated in the live session! In case you missed it,
don’t fret, as the recording is still available on the Canvas page. (https://
New SRC Members:
We are excited to welcome three new members to the SRC. Alexandra Croft will
serve as the Faculty of Education representative, Jaimee Waddell will be the
Ngunnawal Centre representative, and Patricia Solares Poggi will serve as the
Academic Board – Postgraduate representative. We are confident that these
new members will bring valuable perspectives and insights to the team and we
look forward to working with them more.
We have implemented new policies that address vacant positions on the SRC
and the way we fill positions on faculty boards.
Staying connected with the SRC is highly recommended for all UC students.
This can be achieved by staying updated with the latest issues of Curieux and
by following the SRC’s social media. By working together, we can establish a
welcoming and inclusive community at UC.
If you have any queries or worries, please don’t hesitate to contact your
designated representative ([email protected])(Find your

for the student population at UC.
All the best,
