Who does it… ?
Nominations are made from among fellow department course reps, (one for undergraduate, and one for postgraduate, plus 2 research reps). They will be the faculty reps within the faculty, and these are their responsibilities:
Faculty reps will be representing students on their Faculty Board, and committees for Learning and Teaching and Research, plus the school-wide Research & Enterprise Committee. All Research Committees require research students; the others require 1 undergraduate and 1 taught postgraduate.
It’s important faculty reps attend the committee they volunteer for regularly – if you are nominated and can’t attend notify the committee secretary & the S.U. (It is not possible to swap reps back and forth).
You will be the voice of your faculty: a unique opportunity to make an impact.
Helping Course Reps
Since the launch of the student rep program the number of course reps has increased. Faculty reps should interact with course reps, and have insider knowledge of the department. Faculty reps will help the Students’ Union in terms of communicating with course reps, and helping course reps when problems arise.
It is important that Faculty reps regularly debrief with the S.U. This is essential so that important information comes to attention of both sides and is shared.
This is an important representation level, and we will need the support of student reps, especially the elected faculty reps. The dates of committee meetings are available through Milaad and Antonia in the Students’ Union, the rep section of the SU website, and your faculty office.
