Vice President Education


The Vice-President (Education) leads a portfolio that represents University of Newcastle students’ views, interests, and needs in relation to on-campus and online education and educational experiences. 

The VP (Education) represents student interests to create change on all relevant education issues, develops and supports an effective structure of academic representation, leads campaigns on relevant issues, and ensures the Education Committee genuinely captures and represents the voice of all students at the University.

In short, the VP (Education) is there to make sure students can get the most out of their program and that their academic experience is as good as it can be.

In addition to the overarching functions of the Education Committee, it is the responsibility of the VP (Education) to monitor and support the Committee representatives. 

The VP (Education) works closely with the President, UNSA staff, particularly the General Manager, and the other members of the Executive to achieve these responsibilities.


Summer Harrison

Hi! My name is Summer Harrison, and I will be undertaking the role of Vice-President for Education at UNSA this year. I am studying a Bachelor of Law and Social Science and am currently in my third year.

This year I am greatly looking forward to collaborating with both students and staff members to ensure that education here at UON is quality and rewarding. I am hoping to meet many on-campus and off-campus students to discuss their thoughts on their degrees so I can be a strong advocate and reliable voice for students! Despite COVID-19 and online learning challenges, my goal is to provide support to students when academic issues arise and liaise with relevant members of academic staff.

Growing up in Newcastle has made me absolutely love the beaches here so in my spare time I enjoy grabbing a good book and some snacks (preferably some Doritos) and heading down to the beach for a swim. A fun fact about me is that I am learning to speak Dutch… hoe gaat het?
