UCSA President: what postgrad students can expect in 2018

Josh Proctor, UCSA President, Economics/Finance, 25.9.17Kia ora all, I’m Josh Proctor 2018 UCSA President elect. First and foremost, I must thank all of those who voted for me in the UCSA elections earlier in the year. I am very excited about the year ahead.

2017 is the first year there has been a specific postgraduate position on the UCSA executive and I believe that it has been a great start. The position has become solidified within the UCSA structure and has generated multiple positive outcomes including developing the representation of postgraduate students and created platforms for the postgrad voice to be carried through to the University. The Postgrad Advisory Group and Postgraduate Working Group are now established and Emma McCone (UCSA Postgraduate Rep 2018) and I are excited about having these tools to relay and verify the postgrad voice.

As an organisation, the UCSA is planning on putting a larger focus on student wellbeing, representation across campus, and international and postgraduate students. This includes the plan to include a specific international representative on the exec for 2018. With a record number of international students on campus it’s important their voice is represented.

Keep an eye out for a postgrad barbecue at the beginning of the year and if you ever have any feedback please feel free to flick it through to your college rep, Emma or myself.

Many thanks,

Josh Proctor
