Student Representation

Student participation in Faculty governance of Business and Law

The governance of an organisation is the structure and process which allows planning and decision-making to take place. It is about effective management and accountability to stakeholders.

The Faculty of Business and Law invites students to participate in the various boards, committees and sub-committees which control all aspects of the management of the Faculty to ensure input from our most important stakeholders - our students.

If you would like to participate in the governance of the Faculty, please complete the Expression of Interest form.
