The 2022 Student Representative Council (SRC) is a collaboration of both domestic and international students, who are all in different stages of their studies but have a common similarity in wanting to build the ICMS community. The SRC has recently elected, Julie Williams as the new SRC President.
Julie Williams shares, “I’m studying a Bachelor of Business in Fashion and Global Brand Management at ICMS. I grew up in Doreen Victoria where I found out about ICMS through an email I received about scholarships one afternoon. After looking at the courses offered I found the bachelors that specialised in fashion and immediately was set on attending the college.
You will see me on campus mingling with all students as I enjoy meeting and conversing with new people. I am a resident at the college so I am often spotted roaming around campus as well as in classes.”
“I joined the SRC to help make a difference at the college. The student experience at the college was greatly impacted by the effects of Covid-19 over the last 2 years. I want to contribute to enhancing the student experience. My aim is to get the SRC back up and running, and to to revamp the student life here at the college in sports, events, clubs and other social activities
I feel very proud of becoming the new SRC President as it involves a great responsibility to look out for the students at the College. I have had a lot of previous experience in other leadership roles going further back than ICMS however, to become the Student President of an entire university is an extreme honour.
I am a very approachable person and hope to be able to meet and get to know as many of the students as I can. Remember I am just like you, a student at the college. Whilst in this role I really want to do my best in working with the rest of the SRC so we as a collective can help all of our fellow peers to have the best time while at ICMS!”
“The SRC’s goal for this year is simply: Make it happen. This goes for sports, events etc anything that provides an opportunity for our students to have greater involvement with the college and improve their student experience”.
Julie Williams and the SRC extend their thanks to the previous SRC President Michaela Mayes who was instrumental in keeping ICMS students’ spirits high whilst undertaking their studies during multiple lockdowns, border closures and socially distanced events.
ICMS draws students from all over the world attracted by our reputation as a vibrant social community with incredible student experiences. The diverse student body remains committed to staying connected via formal and informal social activities, both on and off campus.
The Student Representative Council (SRC) strives to improve the quality of student life for the entire student body. Elected by their peers, the SRC acts as an advocate for the student body with the elected SRC President taking charge of the events and activities. The SRC also works closely with the Student Experience Team to plan and organise a range of social and cultural activities, including major events such as our College Icebreaker party and themed events such as talent shows, karaoke, cocktail and movie nights.
The SRC is the voice of the students and represents all students’ views on academic and experience-related issues to the College. This not only gives students the forum to voice their views, but also gives the College valuable feedback when planning for the future.
The objectives for which the SRC is established are to:
The Community Contribution Scheme has been developed to nominate one or two high contributory student(s) each academic term. These are students who go above and beyond with their volunteering work at the College. The contribution includes high involvement in the student experience events such as O-Week, sport activities, community volunteering and organising fundraising events. Students may choose to donate their time and skills to embrace the experience within the student community.
If there is something you would like to raise the SRC, you can contact the President to voice your concern.
SRC elections are held throughout the academic year. If you would like more information about joining the SRC or upcoming elections, please email [email protected]
