Yourimbah has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (a written agreement) with the other UON student representative organisations, NUSA and NUPSA, to research the possibility of a new, merged student representative organisation.
The purpose of a new student representative organisation would be to offer a more equitable representation of all students of the University of Newcastle. The new student representative organisation would have the capacity to represent and support students at all Australian based campuses, as well as students studying online.
We are in the process of researching what a new structure could look like and have conducted some consultation in the form of interviews, focus groups and surveys of a number of UON students.
The current student representative organisations have agreed to a best practice structure for a new student representative organisation and we will seek legal advice before making any decisions.
Yourimbah members will be informed about more details of the planned organisation and will be asked to vote on the matter at the appropriate meeting.
