Description

Summary:

  • There is a strong culture of student engagement in decision making in universities in other countries.
  • That culture is emerging in Australia but more work is needed to make it systemic. Under-represented student groups, such as post graduate students, need to be better engaged.
  • Training, support and incentives are important dimensions to improving engagement.
  • A culture of partnership is borne out of institutional commitment to, and respect for, student voice.
