Being a class representative is an opportunity to take an active part in determining your education experience. Each of your classes will have a student representative to promote constructive communication between students and staff.
They give lecturers access to students’ opinions on the teaching and delivery of papers. Representatives give confidential feedback to their department, reporting on positive aspects and identifying any potential areas for improvement.
Class representative are essential to both the University and the Students. They allow students to air their views to the academics that run their department on issues like course content, teaching and resources. They are the first point of contact for students in each class.
The Class Representatives act as an extension of the class they represent. They are the link between their class and the academic leaders of their program, and the Students’ Association. In order to become a class representative, a student must be enrolled in a program, and must be elected by the students in their program. Elections will be held within the first week of a program’s academic year. For each class, there will be one class rep.
Program Councils provide a forum for Class Representatives, faculty, and the academic manager of a specific program to discuss topics related to the program. They allow a continuing dialogue on issues that require attention and vigilance over time. The Class Representative is to bring forward any opinions, concerns, and ideas from their classmates regarding their academic experience.
The first program council meeting is to be held within the first two weeks of a new term.
