Hi, I’m Alan, and I am a 2022 DUSA Student Councillor. I’m a Postgraduate Cloud student currently studying a Master of Politics and Policy, after previously completing a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Laws at Deakin.
Prior to becoming a student councillor, I had served as a DUSA Student Representative, a DUSA Crew volunteer, I had been a club executive of several DUSA clubs, and I had served in a number of Deakin peer mentor programs. As a student councillor, I hope to advocate on behalf of students and I hope to enhance and improve the student experience, particularly in relation to the university’s post-COVID recovery. In particular, I hope to provide Cloud students with a voice, to ensure that they are involved and included in student life, to ensure they are adequately consulted on issues which affect them, and to ensure that their university and study experience is productive and memorable, through addressing gaps in service delivery and ensuring equitable access to resources and opportunities.
I’m really looking forward to what’s to come in 2022!
