Class Advocates

ASA GM Page Header


These volunteer positions are an essential part of the Association and University feedback system providing criticism and comment and clarification over areas of particular interest or import to students – health, welfare, safety, academic quality, resources for courses and many more.

Class Advocate T-shirts

Class Advocate t-shirts are available from ASA reception, in male and female designs, for just $20 each.

What does being a Class Advocate require?

  • A one hour training session
    • Semester 1 - March 13th 2019 12pm OR 1pm
    • Semester 2 - July 31st 2019 12pm OR 1pm
  • Some initiative – do introduce yourself to your classmates and lecturer, be approachable, address issues or report them to ASA in a proactive manner etc
  • The amount of time/effort you put into your role as a Class Advocate is ultimately up to you though

Of course there are plenty of opportunities to take the role further if you wish, including advanced training levels and an online fortnightly logbook for your papers (completing entries puts you in the draw for heaps of prizes!).

Class Advocate of the Year

Each year we hold an end of year party to recognise and celebrate our volunteer class advocates.  Make sure you come along as there are always plenty of prizes to be won. Class Advocates are presented with certificates and those who have completed extra training are also acknowledged. Advocacy Excellence awards are presented to class advocates who have gone the extra mile.  And, each year, we name one advocate as our Advocate of the Year and their name is engraved on the honour board in the student lounge.  Recipients of this award are listed below:

  • 2018 Philip Kim
