Student Representation and Student Associations


Student Representation Committee

The Student Representation Committee (SRC) is concerned with the improvement of the student experience for all students at Southern Cross University across all campuses and partner provider locations (within Australia) and students studying online or via distance education. It recommends to the Vice Chancellor how SSAF funds should be allocated. The term of the SRC membership runs for two years.

It provides a varied range of social, sporting, welfare and cultural events and activities, offering products and services at greatly subsidised rates, and helping students who have a problem or issue through active representation between its members and other student organisations within the University, the SCU administration and the regional community.
