Caitlyn Allen

Online Student Representative

My name is Caity and I am currently lucky enough to be a student representative for the online cohort! I am currently undertaking a double degree in criminology/Laws and have completed the majority of my studies online which has provided me with the unique experience to travel AND study concurrently. I have a massive passion for travel and am also a bit of an adrenaline junkie, you can usually find me jumping out of planes or off perfectly fine bridges!

As a result of this opportunity, it has given me great insight regarding my large array of interaction with UNE and now I am finally able to give back! I am passionate about making the UNE online experience first class, especially now that the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has pushed the need for efficient, flexible and accessible education.

Please reach out if you have any questions or suggestions or just need someone to listen, I am all ears!!!

Zoe Elleyn

Zoe Elleyn

Online Student Representative

My name is Zoe Elleyn and I’m studying a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Social Science online. I live in Melbourne with my seven rescue animals and carer. I was born with a genetic condition called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. In life I come across many areas in society that I cannot access or only access with difficulty. This has created a determination in me to improve the quality of lives of disabled people. I’m particularly passionate about education accessibility as education is so important to quality of life.

In my role on the SCC I hope to bring my unique life experiences in disability to help create better accessibility for those studying online. I believe in continuing to find ways to make education accessible to as many people as possible. I am excited and honoured to get to use my experiences to help shape and improve UNE

Cordel Murphy

Cordel Murphy

Online Student Representative

I have been at UNE since 2015, starting in the Pathways Enabling course before moving onto a Bachelor of Computer Science and a Bachelor of Education (K-12). I completed my CompSci degree in 2019 and hope to finish Education in 2020, before potentially pursuing post-grad qualifications. I am also proud to have studied in both modes UNE offers, On and Off Campus, which provides a unique perspective to help strike a balance between both cohorts. I speak English as my native tongue and intermediate Polish with experience in Polish culture from being an exchange student (both high school and university).
By joining the SCC, I hope to provide service to the wider university community and stakeholders, as well as helping close the feedback gap between the university and students. I also wish to become a better person and always lend an ear (or an eye!) to fellow students. I’d also like to see the SCC become an integral part of the university and a part of student life whether it be for information or as help for where to go about varying services or complaints.
Phoebe Kaye

Phoebe Kaye

Online Student Representative

My name is Phoebe Kaye and I am an online representative in the Student Consultative Council. I am studying a Bachelor of Education (K-6) and currently completing my second year of study. I live in Broken Hill, which is in Far West New South Wales. I have a background in education with my mother being a teacher and completing a year as a governess on a sheep and goat station as well as working in after school care services.

The reason I wanted to join the SCC is because I felt as though students studying remotely like myself did not have much of a voice at the University. There are 20+ UNE students that I am aware of in the Broken Hill region and I wanted to give them a voice and see that their feedback and concerns were heard by the UNE community. I am looking forward to working as a team to see UNE improve for all its students and staff.

Colin Tilini

Colin Tilini

General Representative – Undergraduate

My election as a SCC representative aligns with my belief that education (and all the aspects that go with it) should be equally accessible to everyone regardless of their circumstances. For personal development, I take the opportunity in assisting people with their issues as a formative basis to constructing rationale and practical solutions. As a law student, I firmly believe that through listening and understanding different perspectives is fundamental to the continuous development personal objectivity and neutrality.

Arguably, my most important goal is within the role is to build meaningful relationships with others. I, as many others, understand the professional, social and personal benefits constructive relationships have in both the quality and quantity of issues people are willing to reveal. I look forward to assisting wherever my help is best suited.

I am an online student who juggles part-time study, life and full-time work commitments. As an undergraduate student representative on the SCC I aim to act as a conduit between students and UNE staff, bringing attention to any issues/suggestions/feedback raised to me. I want to make sure that your voice is heard and accounted for in decisions, so that these decisions improve upon the UNE community for the benefit of us all.
