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.
Hey! My name is Chloe Jones. I’m an undergraduate Physiotherapy student, and your Vice-President for Education at UNSA. When I’m not at the uni, I work as a learn-to-swim instructor, after growing up as a competitive swimmer myself. I also have the cutest puppy named Buddy and can’t pass up a good Chai latte.
As VP (Education), I get to work alongside students and staff to ensure all of us here at the University get the most out of our chosen programs. I’m passionate about fostering a tertiary experience that is both rewarding and full of opportunities to thrive academically. I believe that the University’s academic program should be current, given at a high standard, and best reflective of what students expect out of their degrees.
A big part of working towards this goal is hearing from and collaborating with all of you! So, if you have any thoughts, feelings, or critiques about your education here at the University, I’d love to hear from you!
