The Project Officer is responsible for NUPSA’s frontline services: its workshops, social events, website, newsletter, mailing list and social media platforms. Through consultation with the Executive, they make creative and logistical decisions regarding each of the association’s projects, and make the necessary arrangements to ensure that each is run successfully.
The Project Officer works with stakeholders both within and outside the University to organise workshops and events, and also attends them in person, connecting with students to promote NUPSA’s services and gather feedback for future initiatives.
Hi! I’m Hugh Milligan, NUPSA’s Project Officer. I’m not a postgraduate student like our Executive members, but I’m an alumni of the University of Newcastle; I have a Bachelor of Music and a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in English and Ancient History.
As Project Officer, I organise and run all the academic workshops, training sessions, social events and (most importantly) free pizza dinners we run throughout the year. Whatever’s on, chances are you’ll see me there – come over and say hi! And if you have any thoughts on how we could assist you better, or suggestions for future events, please let me know.
Outside of work, I’m writing a science fiction novel; it’s my dream to be an author someday. I’m also an avid gamer, so if you’re into Super Smash Bros. or Mario Kart, come find me on my lunch break! (It’s on.)
