The Gozo Liaison Officer’s main aim is to make sure that there is a continuous and direct contact between the KSU Executive and the representatives of the Gozo University Group (GUG). The Gozo Liaison Officer shall be the President of GUG ex-officio. GUG is a senate recognised student organisation which represents Gozitan Students which make up around 10% of the student body at the University of Malta.
KSU Representatives and the Gozo Liaison Officer shall meet on a regular basis to discuss issues and challenges which Gozitan Students face when they are studying at the University of Malta. This will ensure that the Council is aware of the particular issues which are related directly to Gozitan students and that it is able to assist GUG in any of their initiatives to better the academic experience of Gozitan Students, both at the University of Malta Main Campus and at the Gozo Campus.
The Gozo Liaison Officer is also a member of the Education Commission. He/She is to attend the Education Commission’s meetings and shall also have the right to vote.
The Gozo Liaison Officer’s post was created in the KSU AGM of March 2012. It then became part of the KSU statute in the KSU AGM in April 2013.
