The Belonging Project is a four-year project investigating, designing and trialling an integrated program and school-based approach to enhancing the student experience at RMIT.
Initiated by academic staff in the School of Media and Communication, the project centered around promoting an ethos of belonging.
Our longitudinal research proves that is possible to embed an ethos of belonging into formal and informal curriculum activities. Using small-scale, low-cost initiatives informed by The Belonging Project's Narrative Model we built confidence and capacity for students in disciplinary, interdisciplinary and global learning environments providing real life employability outcomes.
The Belonging Project team deploys grassroots and inclusive approaches to improve the student experience within the School of Media and Communication.About
