Student-Staff Consultative Committees (SSCC)

As an SSCC Student Representative, you will:

  • Develop your ability to manage meetings 
  • Learn how to collaborate effectively 
  • Sharpen your advocacy skills
  • Build leadership, conversational and problem-solving skills

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.

Academic Board Student Representatives

Reporting to RMIT Council, the Academic Board is the governing body responsible for oversight of RMIT's academic mission. This includes learning and teaching, scholarship, research and research training.

Elected Student Representatives provide feedback to the Board to help improve the student experience.
