VP Student Rights - UQU 2022 Executive

(she/her)

Hi! My name is Samara and I am your Academic Student Rights Vice President for 2022. Currently I’m in my final year of studying a Bachelor of International Studies, majoring in International Inequality & Development and Japanese.

As VP, I aim to not only foster a strong sense of scholarship as per UQ’s values, but also ensure that academic injustices faced by students are adequately heard, ameliorated, and elevated to the appropriate University levels to ensure they will be avoided in future. This will be achieved through a focus on initiatives empowering the student voice and student-led advocacy.

What I am particularly looking forward to this year is being able to provide more financial support for students struggling to balance studies and other aspects of life. If you are in need of financial assistance, I would encourage you to check out our Poverty on Placement initiative and other bursary services available throughout the year.

If you are experiencing any academic concerns, I am always open for a chat. Feel free to get in touch with me at samara.paradine@uqu.com.au
