The Student-Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC) is the official organisation for effective communication between students, lecturers, and other staff, giving students the opportunity and channel to give feedback on their thinking and experiences in their study and life.

1. Who can become a Student Representative and How?
1.1 Definition of Student Representative
Student Representative A student-voted "speaker" who speaks on behalf of the wider student body, and where appropriate, collaborates and coordinates work with other students with the same or similar authority. As the leader and service provider among students, student representatives need to have good organizational and coordination skills, truly represent the wishes of the majority of students, and actively help the school and staff build a bridge of communication. Student representatives' concerns should focus on the difficulties or problems that students encounter in their school life.
It is not always obvious whether a certain problem will affect students' study and life, so it is necessary for student representatives to discover and summarize in a timely manner from the perspective of students. As the primary communication link between staff and student, student representatives should be the transfer and processing hub for issues and information. As a position that requires comprehensive ability, student representatives need to have good communication skills, time management skills, organization and coordination skills, and a considerable degree of empathy. Excellent critical thinking and relatively good oral expression skills are the key to success.
