Student-Staff Consultative Committees (SSCCs)

RMIT University values student voice and is committed to working with students to improve the quality of learning and teaching experiences. The Student-Staff Consultative Committee (SSCC) enables students to formally partner with staff to shape future academic improvements for a particular program (e.g., Bachelor of Commerce, Diploma of Visual Arts). 

Student representatives on an SSCC have the opportunity to identify and voice areas of improvement for a program or curriculum, share their fellow students’ feedback and work collaboratively with academic staff to find solutions. 

For more information on the SSCC, please refer to the SSCC Representative Manual.

Please note: SSCCs do not deal with official complaints about academic programs, staff or students. Find out how to submit a complaint.

 

Who can become an SSCC representative?

Any current student enrolled at RMIT who is passionate about their RMIT experience and interested in representing the student voice of their cohort.\
