Centre of Governance & Human Rights (CGHR)


We are fortunate to have an engaged student community from across the university. This is headed by our Student Group, which plays a central role in coordinating events, publicity & outreach. Each year, the Student Group makes a crucial and often inspired contribution to CGHR's work, bringing fresh ideas and helping to open up new directions for CGHR activities.

As CGHR’s Student Group Coordinator I helped manage the publicity, outreach and events of a research centre at the cutting edge of its field. I honed a range of competencies, from editing and writing skills to organising content for social media, as well as gaining experience in leading an enthusiastic and engaged team. We had ample opportunity to make new connections and execute initiatives to expand the reach of the Centre. It was particularly enjoyable to be exposed to the ideas, people and conversations around CGHR, which enlivened my academic experience and exposed me to new pathways for putting my degree into practice.
