Jamila Fontana

General Representative

I am running as a Stand Up candidate because I believe that student representation at UTAS needs to rediscover the population it works for. I believe a transparent and innovative representative body can start to take back the ‘student experience’ and make it something we all want to be involved in.

I have been on representative councils throughout all level of education and am currently the president of a UTAS society. With this experience I want to work to support the SRC and provide more direct representation.

What I Want To Do

  1. Be a filter for student opinion to the SRC on what kind of events they would best enjoy and gain from on campus.
  2. Support our welfare & equity, publications and education candidates in creating a more inclusive university campus.
  3. Staying abreast of education issues at UTAS and acting on behalf of students if their quality of education is ever put in jeopardy.
  4. Strive to continue the work done by previous SRCs and make it increasingly relevant to UTAS south students.
