ASSC Student Advisory Group

The College of ASSC recruits annually for the Student Advisory Group (SAG). The Student Advisory Group provides a useful channel of communication between students and the ASSC Student, Transition, Achievement and Retention (STAR) team, Executive College and Academic Committees.

The purpose of SAG is to consult with students at all levels on matters pertaining to transition, retention and student achievement, and to discuss ways to improve the student experience.

How to join

To join the ASSC SAG, you will need to be a current ASSC student and available to attend at least 3 meetings per year. Meetings are held during semester (schedule for current year below). You may also be occasionally contacted by our staff to provide further feedback on upcoming activities and developments in relation to student transition, achievement and retention.

Being part of SAG 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, while contributing to ways in which the student experience can be improved and enhanced. Meetings will be held in the Library, Ground Floor, Seminar Room 1.34, with regional students advised of the video conference location. By being part of the SAG you will also get a certificate of appreciation to add to your resume in addition to the chance to connect with La Trobe staff and other students.

Joining SAG is an excellent way to become involved in making direct changes to the university across all campuses. If you want to contribute to making your university a great place to study AND meet other fantastic students, then SAG is the place for you!


Quotes from advisory group members

“What I've got out of this experience is immeasurable. I've been able to help exact change, my opinion has been taken seriously and carefully considered and I've felt a closer connection to the university.” Claire, BA (Hons)

“The group provides a genuine opportunity for students to provide feedback and insight about the university to staff members who are enthusiastic, helpful, and excited to create positive change…and provides great opportunities for students in other areas of their education and development, such as connecting with other university clubs and events on campus, and even attending interstate conferences.” Georgia, BCom LLB (Accounting)
