Deakin is defined by the people who make up our University community. We are inclusive and value diversity. We understand the importance of having a diversity of people and views represented on our decision-making bodies and we encourage all students and staff to consider standing for election to the University Council, Committees and Boards.
Student and staff representation
Student and staff elected positions form part of University Council, Academic Board and Faculty Boards memberships. Elected representatives contribute to setting strategic directions and upholding quality and standards of the University. Elected representatives have an equal voice and contribute to good governance. Being at the heart of decision-making allows elected representatives to have a positive influence on the quality of teaching and research at Deakin.
Elections have concluded for 2023. Key dates for the 2024 elections will be published here when available.
Participation, fairness and transparency are vital to any democratic process. Deakin University carries out its elections with these values in mind to ensure you are involved, treated impartially and informed.
Elections at Deakin are conducted electronically and in accordance with the University’s Elections policy.
