As an active member of the Ourimbah campus community, Sue’s strong commitment to student advocacy and equity is reflected in her roles as Student Representative for the School of Humanities and Social Sciences (2013 to 2017), as a member of the Student Representative Committee, and as a Director of Yourimbah (2015 to date). She is also the Ourimbah campus representative on the UON Student Advisory Council and a member of the UON Safety and Crime Consultative Committee.
Sue is currently completing a Bachelor of Social Science (Honours). Her research explores how women experience public space(s) in everyday life, and the role of public space(s) in the formation of collective action.
A strong interest in place-making and its implications for community engagement and resilience (particularly on the Ourimbah campus) reflects Sue’s commitment to a ‘student partnership’ approach in which students are actively involved in all aspects of university life and participate in all levels of decision making.
