Mawsa represents students through a number of avenues.
Our executive and staff sit on national and regional boards and committees. Our president sits on the Academic Board and other University boards to give a student perspective on issues, insights and ideas. Many of the executive members also either sit on College Boards, or liaise with their relative departments within the University. If you have feedback for any of the following committees please contact our exec or student advocate.

Mawsa recruits Class Advocates in all courses at Massey Wellington. These Advocates work to resolve issues in their classes, and provide a vital source of information to Mawsa on a variety of issues around campus. The Class Advocates help to ensure that Mawsa is aware of issues happening around campus and how they affect different courses, thus allowing Mawsa to represent students in an effective and informed way.
Class Advocates are about making sure that your university education is the best it can be. They act as a link between classes, their lecturers, Mawsa and the University. Being a Class Advocate is a vital role for students, but it doesn’t have to be a lot of work. Class Advocates need to make sure their class knows who they are, and where to take any issues that do arise. Much of their role is about communicating any issues to the right people, they receive training and they are always supported by the Student Advocate.
Your lecturer should ask for Class Advocates in the first week of your course. If no Class Advocate has been appointed and you would like to be a one, contact your student advocate as soon as possible to make sure you don’t miss out on training. There are a lot of incentives to being a Class Advocate including employment skills, references, free feeds, spot prizes, and ultimately the feeling that you are making a difference for students.
