Student-Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC)

We are committed to enabling all students to communicate their views and to receiving suggestions to influence changes to our policies and procedures.

Geography has an undergraduate Student-Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC), which gives you the opportunity to voice your opinions about studying with us and to comment on a wide range of issues and possible developments.

The SSLC is presided over by Subject Chairs (a student elected by the Students’ Guild) and composed of elected student representatives from each year and programme and appropriate staff representatives. Training for Subject Chairs is provided by either the Students’ Guild or FXU depending on whether you are based in Cornwall or Exeter. A standard agenda is provided by the Taught Faculty, and minute taking is provided by the discipline Administrator.

The Associate Dean (Education) and Assistant College Manager (Education) for the College of Life and Environmental Sciences meet with Subject Chairs on a regular basis, and Subject Chairs are represented on College’s Education Strategy Group.
