Student Rights Vice President

Alexandra Marks

Hi everyone, I’m Alexandra Marks (but you can call me Alex), and I am the co-Vice President of Student Rights for the QUT Guild. You can contact me at

I am currently studying a double degree in Human Services and Justice, majoring in Policy and Politics, so I am very passionate about social justice issues and creating change for the better. Hence, why I am excited to be joining the Guild.

The Student Rights Portfolio is about ensuring and improving welfare, education and advocacy for QUT students. Too many students deal with financial, food, and welfare insecurity, as well as face advocacy issues throughout their time at QUT. I aim to help improve these issues, so students can thrive not just survive.  

At my time at the Guild, I hope to help expand the amazing work Sarah Balmer has done with the Foodbank and create new initiatives to help reduce inequalities at QUT. If you have any ideas or initiatives you would like to see please send an email through.

Be well and be kind.
