Become a change maker: Join UCSA’s 2022 Advisory Groups

Create real change and support UC students by joining the UCSA’s Advisory Groups in 2022!

We’re recruiting for the Equity and Wellbeing (EWAG), Postgraduate (PGAG), and International (IAG) teams.

These groups work with our Student Exec to build a campus that listens to student feedback and creates a sense of belonging. Past initiatives include giving feedback on the redevelopment of UC’s Wellness Hub and UCSA events like O.Week. Other examples are PGAG’s input on the recently approved Graduate School.

Get involved: Apply on our website before Friday 8 October 2021.

Student Choice Awards – Celebrating UC Staff

You might know this event as Staff of the Year Awards, or maybe even Lecturer of the Year. Let us introduce you to the 2021 version – the UCSA Student Choice Awards; more colourful and student
focused than ever before!

We’d love to hear about a staff member on the University of
Canterbury campus that you’d like to celebrate. This year, we have opened a number of categories for students to nominate within:

  • College Lecturer Awards (the winner of each College will be
    considered for the overall Lecturer of the Year Award)
  • Postgraduate Supervisor of the Year Award
  • Administrator of the Year Award
  • Technical Staff Member of the Year Award
  • Support Services Staff Member of the Year Award
  • Superstar Award
  • Great Character Award
  • The Wellbeing Champion Award
  • Make Your Own Awards

If your favourite staff member doesn’t quite fit within the
‘traditional’ awards, you can even make your own award! You name the award, you nominate the staff member. We will honour the best (maybe worst) make your own awards on the night and even invite you to the ceremony to present it.

Nominations close on September 15th so get in quick!
