President - UQU 2020 Executive

Hi, my name is Ethan, and I’m your 2020 UQ Union President.


I’m in my 5th year at UQ, studying a Bachelor of Laws. I have been engaged and active in student life since starting here in 2016. In 2017, I served as Secretary of the UQ Pride Alliance, as a Union Councillor in 2018 and as Union Secretary last year.

I’m so proud to have worked with the Union team to deliver great results to students in 2018 and 2019. This year, we’ve got a vision of reinvigorating campus culture: we’re bringing back the world’s biggest Toga Party, rolling out a SECOND Cultural Fiesta and doing even more to support our wonderful student-led clubs and societies. You’ll also see an expanded Kampus Kitchen, running every night of swotvac with tasty, diverse menu options.

No matter what uni can throw at you, UQU is here to support you. Whether you need legal, academic or just a little bit of life advice, our dedicated Student Advocacy and Support team is always available to you. SAS is completely free, independent and confidential.

Being a student isn’t easy, whether you’re full-time, part-time, undergrad, postgrad, domestic or international. UQ is a unique university, and studying here comes with its own unique challenges and opportunities – and I’ve experienced many of them first hand. That’s why I’m committed to making your UQ experience better.


We at the Union are looking forward to a great year in 2020, and we’re so happy to share it with you.
