Lobbying for UniSA student services
❤️ A Queer Officer on the USASA Board
🧡 An autonomous safe space on-campus for queer students and staff to relax in an embracing environment
💛 A university counsellor with training and speciality in providing counselling to queer students
💚 Easier student access to organisations offering sexual health advice and external queer-friendly counselling
💙 Inclusive university policies to protect students and staff from discrimination
💜 The establishment of an Ally Network of queer-friendly staff members who can provide support to queer-identifying students
We're run by queer students, so we understand the sensitive nature of the issues that you may have experienced such as:
❤️ Coming out as queer-identified
💛 Finding like-minded friends
💚 Personal, moral, and religious conflict
💙 Questioning your gender identity and sexuality
💜 Relationship challenges
We can provide a connection to appropriate counselling services. If you'd rather not go through the counselling process, then we are happy to answer queries and concerns via email or Facebook. We understand that not everyone would like to be personally identified for a number of reasons; your identity will be kept a secret. A useful list of university and external services are provided in our brochures downloadable here (also available in Arabic, Mandarin and Spanish).
You can join the committee by nominating at the Annual General Meeting in March, or at a Special General Meeting where a casual vacancy has arisen or a new executive role has been created. Check our meeting minutes for current committee members.
