As a governance body, the Council requires decisions to be made that are in the best interests of the Institution as a whole. Each member of Council is asked to make contributions to decision making that reflects their individual perspective and knowledge, while recognising that decisions should deliver the best outcome for Massey University.
The student position on Massey University Council ideally requires a person who:
Written and spoken communication, an understanding of the tertiary sector and trends in education are all valuable in the Council environment. Students on Council are expected to consider and include the needs of students in efforts to constantly improve Massey University.
As a Council member, opportunities exist for improving knowledge of governance and verbal and written communication, both formally and informally.
All members of Council are expected to attend the five scheduled meetings per year, as well as any planning days, committee meetings and other Council meetings that may be called. Preparation, predominantly reading, is required for each meeting. Attendance at a number of graduation ceremonies is also a part of official Council duties.
If any student standing in this election would like to talk with Chancellor Michael Ahie about a Council member’s role and responsibilities he would be very happy to do this. This can be arranged by contacting the Council’s Executive Secretary Priscilla Jeffrey at firstname.lastname@example.org
Students must be enrolled at Massey University as at 9.00am Friday, 20 July 2018 to stand and/or vote in the election, the term of which is for two years from the date of appointment by Council in September 2018.
