- About Deakin
Welcome to the Deakin University - E-election web-site.
Having worked in the science industry for three years I was a participant in a variety of committees regarding the organization of the laboratory work and preparation of yearly projects. I participated in planning and liaised with scientists from other divisions. I wrote work processes to assist scientists when doing their research. I dealt with scientists concerns and organised a system that worked for everyone.
Last year I commenced a new Job at ME/CFS Australia (Victoria). I contribute in the organization and structure of work and participate in-group meetings.
I am taking part in the Deakin/SBS Mentoring program where I contribute to discussions and committees.
Benjamin is a second year student undertaking the Bachelor of Arts/Laws. He is seeking the Faculty Board undergraduate student position due to strong interests in academic standards, coupled with a desire to ensure the student voice is conveyed at a decision-making level.
Benjamin has maintained a high academic average whilst also being a passionate member of the Deakin Law Student Society and Deakin University Student Association. This engagement in academic and extra-curricular activities has allowed Benjamin to witness a cross-section of student opinions. Benjamin wishes to voice these opinions to ensure the experiences he has enjoyed are available to future students.
After four years studying an International Studies and Law degree and working as a student ambassador for the University, I have a sound understanding of the faculty.
I am currently interning on Capitol Hill with students from nine other Australian universities which has provided me with insight into areas each university excels in and those it could improve.
As a former School Vice-Captain I attended a variety of Board meetings and strategic planning days and am accustomed to working in such an environment. And, as a lifelong learner, I am genuinely interested in the University’s quality of teaching and research.
