USASA Clubs are established under the USASA constitution as sub-committees of the USASA board. The funds used by USASA to deliver its services, including support to and funding of clubs, is provided by the University from SSAF funds collected in any given year.
The Higher Education Legislation Amendment (Student Services and Amenities) Act states that fee revenue must not be used to support political parties, or to support the election of a person to a Commonwealth or State or Territory Parliament.
Clubs are prohibited from providing support to any political party or campaigning for any political party or person in any election. This includes but is not limited to, communications, marketing materials, signage, social media, posters, events and activities on or off-campus.
Any breaches will be treated with the utmost seriousness up to and including the removal of clubs and club persons from University campus, and the suspension or removal of a club from the USASA clubs register.
