Student-Staff Consultative Committees (SSCCs)
Represent your peers in your academic program.
SSCCs discuss program-related issues, such as:
- course and program structure
- teaching methods
- access to resources and facilities
- class sizes.
SSCCs do not deal with complaints or grievances about staff or students, and student rights issues (such as appeals) which have separate processes.
To become a student representative, you must nominate yourself for the role at the start of the year. Your School will hold an election if there are more nominations than places on the committee. All students in your study program can vote.
For Business students, visit the College of Business Student Representatives site. You can register your interest to become a student representative and view past meeting minutes here.
As a student representative you get the opportunity to make a difference by improving the learning experience for students. As part of this process you will develop valuable relationship management and leadership skills for your future career.
As a student representative you can also attend a free, three-hour interactive training session.
At the session you will receive an SSCC Manual (PDF 484kb 24p). When you have completed the training and the required number of hours of active participation in your committee recorded on an Activity Record Sheet (PDF 108kb 2p), you become eligible for an LEAD certificate signed by the Vice-Chancellor.
As an SSCC Student Representative, you can attend a free, comprehensive training session by RMIT LEAD. Training is held at the start of Semester 1 and Semester 2 and when training is available you can book in via CareerHub.
The training is a free three-hour session designed to equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge you will need to fulfill your role as a SSCC representative and expand your employability skills.
