SHE Student Reference Group

The College of SHE recruits on an annual basis for a Student Reference Group (SRG). The reference group provides a useful channel of communication between students and the SHE Student, Transition, Achievement and Retention (STAR) team. The purpose of the SRG is to consult with SHE students and get feedback in regards to transition and retention and discuss ways to improve the student experience.

To be involved you will need to be a current SHE student and be available for at least four out of the six 60-minute meetings which will be held throughout the year. We will meet three times per semester, during weeks 2, 7, & 11 - please refer to meeting schedule below. You may also be occasionally contacted by our staff via email to provide further feedback on upcoming activities and developments in relation to student transition, achievement and retention.

Being part of the reference group is a great way to develop transferable skills for future employment (especially communication & interpersonal skills) but also to learn more about how your university operates, and contribute to ways in which the student experience can be improved and enhanced. Meetings will be held in Peribolos West, Ground Floor, Room 116, and with regional students advised of the video conference location. By being part of the SRG you will also get a letter of appreciation to add to your resume in addition and the chance to connect with La Trobe staff and other students.

Applications for the 2016 reference group have closed.
