Faculty reps can represent the student view higher up in the university to enhance the wider SHU experience. Faculty reps can participate in faculty, university and students’ union committees and some faculty reps lead or take part in projects. Becoming a faculty rep is a way to take on greater responsibility and enhance your skills further, as well as having the potential to have a greater impact on your university and students’ union.
As a faculty rep, your role may involve different tasks depending on which faculty you are based in and what is happening in the university at the time. Here are some of the things that your role might involve:
- Gathering feedback from students and/or course reps
- Collating and analysing feedback from course reps
- Attending faculty or university committee meetings to put forward a student viewpoint
- Sitting on the union council within the students’ union
- Working with other students and staff to develop projects
- Giving feedback on university projects
- Taking part in discussions with faculty staff
- Carrying out research to find out about students’ experiences
You will need to either be a course rep or have previously been a course rep to become a faculty rep. This is because you need to have some experience and understanding of representing students in order to take on this more advanced role. For information on how to become a course rep click here.
The process for becoming a faculty rep is different in each faculty. For more information, or if you have any questions about faculty reps, please contact email@example.com who will be happy to help.
