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).

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.

SRC Constitution Changes: Welcoming the Digital Campus 

The Student Representative Council has commenced the necessary process of changing the constitution to include the digital campus as a designated campus to allow for an SRC Digital Campus Committee. This will allow for Griffith students who are studying online to have representation on the Student Representative Council in 2021. In accordance with the SRC constitution, a referendum must be held to allow the Brisbane and Logan undergraduate student body to vote on these changes.

Please Click Here for the proposed changes to the constitution. A summary of changes below:

  • Page 4 – 1.1.1 l: SRC Campus means a campus of the University that has been designated as an SRC Campus for the purposes of this Constitution by the Council, including, unless the Council decides to the contrary, the campuses of the University located in Brisbane and Logan, and the Digital Campus. Nathan, Logan, South Bank and Mt Gravatt in the State of Queensland.  For consistency with the Act, an SRC Campus does not include the campus of the University located at the Gold Coast;

Voting in the Referendum

Voting will be conducted by electronic means from 9am on Monday 2nd November 2020 and will close on Friday 6th November at 5pm. If you wish to vote in this referendum, you should record your vote electronically at the Student Election website: https://app.secure.griffith.edu.au/03/eballot/
