The Vice-President (Education) leads a portfolio that represents UON students’ views, interests and needs in relation to on campus and online education and educational experiences at UON.
The VP Education role is to represent student interests to create change on all relevant education issues, to develop and support an effective structure of academic representation, to lead campaigns on all relevant issues, and to ensure the Education Committee genuinely captures and represents the student voice of all students at UON.
In short, the VP Education is there to make sure students get the most out of their program, and that their UON 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 representatives to the Committee.
The VP Education works closely with the President, UNSA staff, particularly the Professional Manager, and the other members of the SRC Executive to achieve all 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 UON 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 UON, I’d love to hear from you!
