Salient. Victoria University Students Newspaper. Vol. 38, No. 2. March 11, 1975
There are five Faculties at this university-Arts, Languages and Literature (which meet together). Science, Commerce and Administration and Law. All staff members are members of the appropriate Faculty and there are different numbers of student representatives on each. Arts and Languages and Literature have four each. Science and Law three and Commerce has five. The student representatives' job is to raise matters directly relating to the problems faced by students in their faculties. Increasingly, over the past year, these representatives have taken on duties of helping individual students battle the university bureaucracy and this is probably their most important role.
To be fully effective they must also understand the bureaucracy and keep up with faculty affairs generally. Again, time is needed to do the job properly, but the time spent is well worth it.
