Help guide the University’s direction on inclusion and diversity

Students are invited to express their interest in joining the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Committee and to help shape the University’s inclusivity and diversity agenda.

The EDI Committee has two open positions for student representatives – one undergraduate and one postgraduate.

Students must be enrolled in a course at La Trobe to be eligible to apply for a position.

The EDI Committee guides organisational change to help the University to be a global leader in higher education for equality, diversity, and inclusion.

The University’s Senior Executive Group (SEG) play a key role in driving institutional change and fostering equitable access, and a fair, inclusive, and safe environment for all staff and students as part of the University’s strategic vision.

The committee is chaired by the Vice Chancellor and is primarily made up of SEG members and CALD, LGBTIA+, Disability and Gender Equity working group representatives.

The purpose of the EDI Committee is to identify the University priorities and objectives to advance La Trobe’s diversity and inclusion agenda for staff and students and ensure that these objectives are translated into programmes of work.

Some of the ways the committee does this includes:

  • Advocate for, and raise awareness of equality, diversity and inclusion issues
  • Work with all University divisions to provide leadership and foster collaboration to support and implement La Trobe’s equity, diversity and inclusion objectives and targets
  • Monitor University performance on a range of diversity and inclusion measures with specific focus on identified priority areas

Applications to join the EDI Committee close at 5 pm on Monday 31 July.
