Governance elections

The University of Wollongong values the participation of both staff and students in its decision making. Each year, the University hosts elections for a number of staff and student positions on governance bodies to ensure that all perspectives are considered.

The Annual General Election period is held from September to October and elections take place as required depending on the regulations governing each individual body and position. A Returning Officer is appointed to oversee the conduct of each election.

If a representative position is vacated before the end of its appointed term, a Casual Vacancy is created. An election to fill a Casual Vacancy may occur outside of the Annual General Election period.
