As the current TUU Vice President (South), Saleh’s key priorities as President will be to lower the cost of living for students, particularly around transport costs.
“I want to look at bus services and see how, if possible, it can be cheaper for students to travel to university, and I am keen to work with the University and the government to do this. I would like to see if we can come up with a better university bus system, particularly for the Launceston campus,” Saleh said.
A vibrant campus lifestyle with an increase in student activities and a more socially inclusive campus, are also on his list of priorities for 2011.
“I would like to see a much more socially inclusive community on campus - it doesn’t matter where you come from, you are always welcome to attend,” Saleh said.
Saleh will take up the position of President at the beginning of December.
