SRC President’s Report – Week 3, Sem 1, 2019

Jacky He

<strong>Updated University Alcohol Policy
</strong>During committee meeting this week, the President Jacky He has taken the opportunity to speak out from a student perspective regarding the University’s updated alcohol policy. To further ensure the safe use of alcohol on campus, Jacky have proposed for a brief alcohol policy module to be created for all students to complete before their commencement at the University. The university should also reach out to colleges on campus and in a collaborative manner, ensure the safe use of alcohol within colleges.
I have also had a chance to meet briefly with the Health Services Unit at the University of Sydney, to discuss strategies on how to improve the mental health state of students – in particular international students. We are currently looking to set up further meetings to raise initiatives that will promote mental health awareness amongst undergraduate students.

<strong>Caseworkers</strong>
One EXCELLENT piece of news that the casework team has informed me about is that within the last week, ALL casework consultation slots have been booked out. We attribute this to the hard work that the caseworkers have committed themselves to handing out wall planners and speaking at orientation events.
