Student Staff Consultative Committee enable students to partner with staff to shape academic program improvements at RMIT.

How does SSCC work and what is your role as a student representative?

Committees typically meet twice a semester online or face to face to discuss program related issues, such as:

  • highlighting examples of good practice
  • monitoring the delivery of courses against course guides
  • monitoring the total student workload 
  • monitoring the general satisfaction of students with the program 
  • considering suggestions for modification and improvement to the program
  • considering and seeking to resolve problems that are of concern to students undertaking the program
  • making recommendations to appropriate managers on matters requiring action that the committee cannot resolve directly. 

Student representatives consult with fellow students to identify program-related opportunities for improvement and present those issues at SSCC meetings. They also provide feedback to the other students sharing the results of the SSCCs actions. 

IMPORTANT NOTE

SSCCs work with issues and recommendations. They do not deal with official complaints or grievances about academic programs, staff or students. RMIT has a separate process for official complaints. Please click here.
