Academic Advocacy Network

The Academic Advocacy Network (AAN) is a student-led system of academic advocacy coordinated by the UQ Union. With representatives across Schools and Faculties, the role of AAN is to speak up on students’ behalf for all academic matters. By making the student voice heard, we can effect positive change and ensure that all students are receiving the best possible education.

Examples of issues you could give feedback on:

·         Courses

·         Assessment

·         Program & major

·         Facilities & resources (eg availability of computers with specific software)

·         Rules and procedures (eg rules around extensions)

If you’d like to see a change in the way that your education is delivered, reach out to your discipline representative below.

How to reach out:

·         Email who you think is the most relevant representative. For example if you are an engineering student and have a specific chemical engineering issue, reach out to the School of Chemical Engineering representative. If you have a broader engineering issue, for example with the Bachelor of Engineering, reach out to your Faculty of EAIT representative.

·         Outline your issue in as much detail as possible

·         Describe any action you have already taken on this issue. Perhaps you have already brought it up with the course coordinator but didn’t receive a response

Not sure who to reach out to? Check the ECP and see which School runs the course. Otherwise, just email the Faculty representative for your study area and your enquiry will be directed to the right person.

For all other general queries regarding AAN, reach out to Vice President (Student Rights) Kaiyin Wu at [email protected]
