Student Leadership Day

Student Leadership Day

70 students from 40 different RMIT student clubs were on campus last week together for the Student Leadership Day.

Hosted by RMIT Student Life and RUSU, this event aimed to upskill student leaders of RMIT clubs which lead to networking and to better the student experience.

After two years of being hosted online, it was exciting to have it back on campus and in person learning essential skills with RMIT offering support and guidance.

The topics that were covered involved student leadership, creating a positive culture, risk management, student storytelling and networking/socialising.

With guest speakers including our Vice-Chancellor Professor Alec Cameron, Josh Farr, RMIT staff and RUSU to name a few.

We spoke to Cheyenne the Vice President of the Life Drawing Club about the value of the day.

"The seminar helped us understand how to better utilise our social media and create an image that reflects not only the club's values but also our content and the activities that we have to offer." 

"The leadership day helped explain and solidify the values we are going to need going into 2022 to make our club successful in completing our goals and bringing back the enthusiasm we had back in 2020”.

"We would recommend attending the leadership seminar! Even if your club is large or small, or you feel like you might already understand how to be a good leader, there's always something new you can learn from the seminar." 

There are a huge variety of clubs, many that will be on campus at HE Welcome Week, including:

  • Academic and study skills clubs
  • Creative clubs
  • Political clubs
  • Social and specialist interest clubs 
  • Spiritual clubs
  • Sport and fitness clubs 

If you are a member of a club or want to gain new skills and expand your network, the Student Leadership Day would be a great experience.

If you missed out on this event, there will be more! This was the first part of a series aimed to assist student leaders in developing their skills.

Future events will be held in Semesters 1 and 2, so keep an eye out. Below are a few resources to explore the clubs and events at RMIT.
