HaSS Faculty Rep Election 2017

Nomination deadline- Monday 27th March 12noon 

Nominate now

Faculty Reps are the voice of the students at faculty-level meetings. They work proactively to find out the concerns of the students through class reps, represent the students in their Faculty at meetings and working groups, and are critical in feeding back developments to students and the Students’ Association. They also sit on Student Parliament, organise campaigns and contribute to the planning and delviery of Student Rep Congress.

More information on the role of Faculty Rep can be found here.

Faculty Reps for Academic Year 2017/18 were elected by cross campus ballot in the Big Student Elections in March and some positions remain unfilled, so we are looking to fill the remaining 2 UG Faculty Rep positions. 

Person Specification 

Faculty Reps are effective communicators, who can engage students and class reps, representing their views to University staff.

Initiative is key, as the post requires proactive engagement with class reps and students, creating innovative solutions to the problems students report in the Faculty.

Though not essential, previous experience as a class representative, representing students at Student Staff liaison committees, would be beneficial.

The position would suit someone with an interest in new dynamic ideas for improving education, and a passion to change the learning experience for all students in the faculty.

Remit 

  1. Represent students to the Faculty in all academic matters.
  2. Attend Faculty level Committees, e.g. Board of Study and Academic Administration Committee.
  3. Support and lead the work of class reps, answering questions and referring complex cases to USSA.
  4. Work with other Faculty Reps to run Faculty level projects, campaigns and initiatives.
  5. Attend Student Parliament, representing the interests of students in their faculty.
  6. Support the campaigns and events organised by the Vice President Education.
  7. Promote the work of USSA to students in your Faculty.
  8. Attend local and national education events where appropriate.
