Mr Junaid Azhar
Appointed by student election
Junaid M. Azhar has been studying at Swinburne since 2016, and is committed to helping students and the wider university community.
He has been an active member of the Student Representative Council (SRC) since 2017, representing the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology. In recognition of his efforts in this role, he was awarded Outstanding Representative for 2017. He has also been awarded the Vice Chancellor’s Volunteering and Leadership Award for 2016 and 2017.
As a member of the SRC, Junaid is a strong advocate for students and has organised important initiatives such as the Have a Say Day (an event where students are able to share their views on key university issues). He strongly believes in a collaborative environment, where students and university staff work together to create a positive and welcoming learning environment for all.
He has also been actively involved in assisting others through Swin-Mentors, Swinburne Peer Assistants, as a Student Learning Assistant and as a Study Group Leader. These programs provide advice and support to students that benefit them both personally and academically. Working closely with students through these initiatives has provided Junaid with insight into a broad range of student needs.
Outside of his studies, Junaid has been a participant of the Swinburne Lawn Bowls Team at the Southern University Games, is the current Treasurer and an active team member of the Swinburne University Bowling Club. He plans to continue his involvement in these areas into the future and welcomes feedback from students and staff about university matters.
