Paul Ting

Vice President - Education

Hi my name is Paul Ting

Hi everyone!

Most people tend to remember me by my last name 'Ting', but you can call me Paul. I'm excited to be your Vice President Education in 2024 and would love to tell you a bit about who I am and what I'm about.

People who know me know that I'm a genuine, upbeat and inquisitive individual who likes to ask questions and really cares about what I do. In my free time I enjoy going outdoors, visiting new places, camping and listening to some banging tunes. I think the best part of life are the small niceties; sipping a delicious bubble tea; connecting with people on a deeper level and talking philosophy.

I joined Deakin in 2022, studying a Bachelor of Commerce and Laws and have since involved myself on campus, joining clubs and attending countless events. In 2023, I was your Burwood Campus Coordinator where I supported a prosperous team to bring to you some awesome initiatives such as the Burwood Chill Out Trolley, the DUSA Clubs Celebration Evening, our student contingency at the Midsumma Festival Parade, the DUSA Podcast and more.

I think the best thing that makes university a truly unique experience is campus life. There is so much more to uni than classes. I know personally, the clubs and events have really enhanced my university experience. They have provided me with great memories, great friends and great vibes and this could not have been possible without DUSA. To give back, I have worked with countless clubs, helping to form new connections and build awesome engaging events. This year, I am the President of the Deakin Enviro Club and Vice President of the Deakin Table Tennis Club.

Prior to university, I involved myself in student leadership, being elected School Captain where I focussed on student engagement, experience and advocacy. Here, I was also awarded the Council's Award for Environmental Sustainability for my work in promoting environmentalism through community and stakeholder engagement. If you wanted any better example of someone who peaked in High School, look no further than me.

Over the next year, I want to contribute to a bustling and lively campus and ensure all of you have an amazing experience. I want to ensure that your concerns are heard by being your relentless voice to the university on issues that will make a difference to you during your time at University.

No topic is off limits and I’m always down for a chat. Please come to say hi if you see me on campus!
