Student Representative Council (SRC)

Student Representative Council

Speaking up for every student

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.

What Do We Do?

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.

Objectives

The objectives for which the SRC is established are to:

  • promote and advocate the interests and welfare of students;
  • advise the CEO and ICMS Executive on student experience matters;
  • be informed of and represent the views of students;
  • encourage the formation and successful management of student cultural, social, sporting and education groups;
  • encourage students to be involved in the activities of the SRC;
  • provide for and promote student extra-curricular activities and social events;
  • provide for the welcoming, orientation and social engagement of new students;
  • promote the  multicultural student body by creating and supporting opportunities to celebrate and showcase the diverse cultures of ICMS; and
  • perform such other roles as may be determined by the CEO.

Community Contribution Scheme

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.

How Do I Get Involved?

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]

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, Jack Parsons as the new SRC President.

Jack Parsons is studying his first year of a Bachelor of Hospitality Management. Jack’s reason to study a Bachelor of Hospitality Management was inspired by his travels around the world. “I have been very fortunate to travel and have amazing experiences and such special memories. I realised that I wanted to live a life of giving those amazing experiences and memories to other people and I found the best way to do that was through Hospitality and thus I chose the Hospitality Management course.

Jack grew up surrounded by a street full of his mates in North Epping, now residing on ICMS’s campus Jack shares his motivation to be on the SRC “I wanted to be on the SRC to make the Student Experience better than it already was, I wanted to jump at the opportunity to contribute to the student body and build more on what ICMS can offer.”

Jack now works for ICMS’s Domestic Recruitment team and understands the ins and outs of what future and current students expect from their SRC President and the Student Representative Council. “My day’s are constantly changing and having pop up meetings, going to class, working with Recruitment, filming marketing videos, running an event, working behind the Basement Bar and more.”

“I wanted to be the President because I wanted to make things happen, I also wanted to further what I had already started building as Vice President before my time as President. I wanted to rebuild the SRC and take it further than it ever has been. I want to give more opportunity to as many students as possible, I’ve been very fortunate to receive a lot of opportunity throughout my time at ICMS and I wanted to be President so I could make more opportunities for more students.”

  • Trivia nights
  • IceBreaker Party

Jack’s objectives

“My objectives going forward are to keep making things happen, keep putting more on, the vibe around campus has been amazing and with things happening every day there is always something to do. Going forward I want to keep using the momentum that the SRC has to do bigger and better events, an example is the End of Year Ball which is being run by the SRC and is the biggest event in SRC history. I want to also listen to the students, if students have ideas or want to help out, I’m always around and very keen to hear what you have to say. If you see me around feel free to say G’day.”

The goals for the President and his SRC

“The goals of the new SRC are to create precedence for future SRC events and to keep building the amazing culture that we have brought back from before COVID and to make it better. The SRC want to keep creating an all round vibe around campus through sport, events, clubs, international events and more. We want to use our position as the SRC to be the student body’s voice so that no one feels unheard.”
