Get involved with our Collectives
We have two main departments at SSU, the Education Department and Welfare Department. Within these collectives are a number of boards, associations and groups that we represent.
Your Education Department takes care of all things both academic on campus, and affecting the quality of your education Australia wide!
They provide services on and off campus, including the Exam Help Stall and free printing service, and represent you at national rallies, and to the University when issues arise.
