Getting Involved

Collective meetings: 

Collective Meetings are held weekly during ANU teaching periods. They are a great way to meet other members, hear about upcoming events, and participate in discussions. All members are encouraged to attend and to raise items to be included on the agenda. Members are also welcome to chair meetings under a floating/rotating chair system. 

Online spaces: 

The main online space of the Department is the Social/Alumni Facebook group. To enter, you must answer all the membership questions. 

We also have an Organising Facebook group that is used from time to time. 

The Safer Spaces Policy applies to our online spaces.

Book Club, Skate Pals: 

Where there is interest, the Department also helps facilitate regular events run by members, such as Book Club, Skate Pals, and whatever else people are interested in! Come along to a Collective Meeting or reach out to the Officer to discuss further.
