Support for UniSA Staff

Do you need a student representative for a committee, working group, focus group etc. but don't know where to start? We can help with that. 

USASA Student Voice is committed to supporting best-practice student representation at UniSA. This page contains a range of resources and tools that can assist staff in embedding student-centred approaches to carrying out University governance functions that involve students.

We can provide:

  • Resources and checklists to assist you in developing best-practice processes
  • A platform to advertise opportunities for students to get involved in university decision-making, including focus groups, committees, and advisory groups
  • Direct recruitment of student representatives, including elections by peers and by recommendation or appointment
  • Training and ongoing support for student representatives as per your requirements

Resources and Checklists

These resources and tools can assist staff looking to develop best-practice processes for involving students in university decision-making. These documents are typically 1-2 pages long and have been compiled through extensive academic research and consultation from UniSA staff and students.

Order print copies here. These are free of charge for UniSA staff and will be sent via internal mail. 

Advertise an Opportunity

If you are a member of staff seeking to advertise an opportunity for students to get involved in University decision-making, please click here to register your opportunity. This can include student representatives for committees required by policy, working groups, steering groups, focus groups, and anything else involving students and staff working together for University governance and operations.

A member of the USASA Student Voice team will respond to your inquiry to discuss whether any additional information is required. Your opportunity will be promoted to students here and directly to those signed up for notifications.

If you are a staff member requiring a USASA nominee for any committee established under the APPM, please email us directly at
