Affirmative Action

On Wednesday 16th March 2016, a General Meeting of Members was held and the proposed amendments to Arc's Constitution were passed. The major changes included the implementation of affirmative action and the composition of the Arc Board. As of June 2016:

  • The Board will comprise of 15 Directors of which 8 Ordinary Director positions must be filled by students of UNSW. 
  • Of the 8 Student Director positions, at least 50% must be filled by women. 


Here's what previous students have said about their time on the board:

I am on-board to provide opportunities and support for all students beyond the classrooms! - Melissa-Ann Gilles, Student Director
Arc provides numerous opportunities for Postgrads beyond research or coursework, and I’m glad I’m able to use my own student experience to help this.- Alex Patton, PGC President
Being on the board means I can really give back to the student community.- Joel Wilson, SRC President

So, if you want to improve student life and not just live it, joining the Arc Board is a good place to start. Let your voice and the voice of your fellow students be heard. The Board works with the Student Development Committee, Postgraduate Council and the Student Representative Council.

They make all the major decisions about the running of Arc focusing on meeting the organisation’s goals and objectives. Not only will you be shaping the UNSW student life experience, you will be honing your leadership, teamwork, and political skills. With all that under your belt you’ll be ready to take on the world post uni.
