All members of the Griffith University community have a right to feel welcome and safe.

It’s everyone’s responsibility at Griffith to ensure equity and inclusion are part of our daily work and study environment.

 

You are probably aware that Griffith offers a range of programs and resources, such as Safe Campuses to promote campus communities that are free from harassment, bullying, discrimination or other behaviours that impact negatively on others. But, did you know that you also have access to security and escort services to help you get home safe?

Dear Griffith student,
If you are a current Griffith University student living with disability, we would like to hear from you.

 

Griffith is currently developing a new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan (DAIP).  We are committed to setting and meeting high standards for institutional disability inclusion and providing an excellent student experience for all students across the full range of services.

 

Along with the broader DAIP consultations, the University has commissioned an external review (Sept/Oct 2021) to focus on learning and teaching service provision for students with disability. This review will seek to better understand the experience and needs of students with disability in relation to learning and teaching and will inform the University’s action planning.
Specifically, it will:
  1. assess the current state of play regarding disability inclusion at Griffith (within Institutional policy and legislative frameworks)
  2. provide a ‘sense check’ to assess whether Griffith is currently meeting the expectations of students with disability
  3. identify gaps, duplication or inconsistencies in service provision, and
  4. make recommendations on actions which would inform the new Disability Access and Inclusion Plan.

 

The review panel invites you to provide a written (or audio/other) response with a view to identifying opportunities and issues as well as high value actions Griffith could take to positively impact students with disability in relation to learning and teaching 

 

Submissions can be provided confidentially via the linked survey form by 8 October 2021 or via email to dvce@griffith.edu.au.  Areas on which you may like to make comment include (but are not limited to):
    • accessibility of services
    • strengths in service provision
    • levels of satisfaction / resolution of issues
    • communications about services / changes
    • special considerations / exam provisions
    • fieldwork / work integrated learning / placements
    • ICT and digital platforms 
    • Library services  
    • awareness, attitudes and inclusive classroom and online practices 
    • clinical and/or laboratory-based learning and teaching  
    • campus specific issues 
    • levels of consultation with students with disability and with staff (academic and professional) supporting students with disability.

 

 

All submissions will be treated confidentially and data deidentified in all reports. Please note that information you provide will be used solely for the purpose of this Review and the names of individual respondents will not be identified in the final review report. Your submission will only be viewed by the Review Panel; however, submissions may be subject to disclosure under the Right to Information Act 2009 (Qld) and Information Privacy Act 2009 (Qld)

In Trimester 1, the SRC Advocacy team wished to gain an understanding of how students at Griffith University experience financial stress within the last 12 months during COVID. With changes to the ways in which students engage with learning and support services at Griffith, there is a need to understand how the SRC and University can support students in managing their financial stress during these unprecedented times. Particularly, when research shows that financial stress can affect academic performance, student engagement, and wellbeing.

The Financial Wellbeing Survey document details the findings of this survey, which will be used to assist the SRC Student Representatives in identifying ways in which the student cohort can be supported regarding their financial stress. We encourage all students to read through these findings, and to contact SRC Advocacy at advocacy@griffith.edu.au if you have further questions or input.

It’s official! The SRC now has a new Constitution! 

 

As 2020 draws to an end, the SRC will transition to welcome a Digital Campus committee on the board in Trimester 1, 2021. With all the changes and challenges COVID-19 brought to the table, the SRC board made the decision to change the SRC constitution to include the Digital Campus Committee so that online students can be represented on the SRC board from 2021 and into the future.

The process for changing the constitution had several steps. Firstly, the board moved a special resolution at their September board meeting to adopt the changes, followed by a referendum from November 2nd – 6th to allow students to vote on the proposed changes. 90.3% of the votes received were in favour of these changes.

The last step was for the new constitution to be approved by the University Council. This week, we were advised by the Office of the Vice President (Corporate Services) that at its December meeting the University Council decided as below:

On the recommendation of the Griffith University Student Representative Council (SRC), Council resolved to approve the revised Student Representative Council constitution (2020/0000070) with immediate effect.

The next step will be for the SRC to determine dates for Trimester 1, 2021 so that nominations can open for the Digital Campus Committee (1 x President & 2 x Committee Members).

To view the new SRC Constitution, please click here, or see an overview of the changes here.

The SRC Offices will be closed during the Christmas and New Year period, please see dates when our offices will open in the new year.  If you have an urgent matter, please email src@griffith.edu.au

SRC team wants to wish all Students a Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.

 

The SRC, in collaboration with students, have developed potential points of concern for students regarding the proposed changes outlined in the Roadmap to Sustainability (R2S), and a template students may wish to use when drafting their feedback about these changes.  Please note that the proposed changes outlined do not encompass all of the proposed changes within the Roadmap to Sustainability, and are not considered, and are not considered anymore, or any less, important than other proposed changes outlined in the Roadmap to Sustainability.

 

Many of the proposed changes will likely affect the Griffith student cohort as a whole, regardless of whether there are occurring outside a student’s program, school, or group.  The SRC want to support students to contribute their feedback to the proposed changes and have their concerns heard.  Click here to see the SRC – Summary of Key Points For Concern in R2S

 

We encourage all students to view a list of the proposed changes here Griffith University Roadmap to Sustainability

 

Example responses have been provided that students may wish to build upon or consider when drafting their responses to the proposed changes.  Please note the example responses should not be considered as conclusive impacts for students, but serve as example concerns that students have raised with the SRC.  Click here to see the Student Response Template.

 

It is recommended that when sending your responses to the proposed changes, to CC advocacy@griffith.edu.au into your responses.  That way the SRC may provide guidance and assistance if necessary.

Stay tuned for upcoming dates.
