Information for current leaders
The Student Leadership Program helps selected students develop potential and build an engaging Griffith community. Participants attend a two-day workshop (valued at over $300) and must undertake at least three unpaid leadership activities within a year.
About the leadership program
Once you complete the Student Leader training, you must be willing to undertake three activities over the next year, where you can put your leadership skills into practice within the Griffith community. Current participants will be expected to have completed their leadership activities by the end of Trimester 1 2020.
Here are some examples of activities you could undertake:
- represent other students on University committees
- be involved in organising student clubs or associations
- assist with event management through the Griffith Mate program
- be a leader in orientation activities
- become a senior buddy through the Griffith Buddy Program
- perform as a mentor in a peer mentoring program
- initiate own activity to address student needs
You will be required to submit a brief online report about each activity. You will also have the option to attend workshop meetings during the year, which will focus on developing your personal leadership style and how your student leadership experiences can contribute to your future career.
Once your finish the program, you will have:
- demonstrated leadership experience for your resume, which may impress potential employers
- the opportunity to develop your own personal leadership style
- a certificate of completion that outlines your leadership activities and service to the Griffith community
- the satisfaction of helping other people.
