Student Representative Committee

The Student Representative Committee (SRC) is a student group focused on coordinating a fantastic program of social events for USQ students each year and representing the student voice on the USQ Student Forum (allocation of the Student Amenities Fee). Becoming a member of the Student Representative Committees is a great way to gain practical skills within event and project management, risk management, communication and more.

'Taking on the role of SRC President was a massive step out of my comfort zone, but with the support of my fellow SRC members and Student Life, I have excelled in the role. I am now in my second term as President and have really found my confidence as a leader. Don't let fear hold you back, go for it, you can do it.'
Krystle, Scott, Ipswich SRC President
