Student Advisory Council

The Student Advisory Council has been formed as a channel for communication between the University and its student community on matters affecting the academic and social wellbeing of students. The Council is made up of students who have been elected by their peers to represent them on University committees and boards, as well as nominated students who represent campuses or specific student groups. The Student Advisory Council strengthens the voice of UON students as it advises the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) and reports annually to the University Council.
