Three students working together

15 September 2023

Got a great idea to improve your faculty? Share it in the ‘Dean for a Day’ competition!

As a university student, you’re on the frontline of teaching and learning – and we bet you’ve got some ideas on how to make the experience even better.

Well, here’s an amazing chance to have your say on positive changes you’d like to see in your faculty! The University of Melbourne has invited uni students across Australia to take part in its ‘Dean for a Day’ competition. This year’s prompt is: ‘If you were Dean of your faculty, how would you enhance student voice?’

Shortlisted submissions will be on display during the National Students as Partners (SaP) Roundtable 2023. Winners will be announced at the closing ceremony of the event and awarded by Professor Jamie Evans, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education) of the University of Melbourne. All the presentations and winning submissions will be included in the digital publication ‘SaP Talks’ after the event.

How to enter

Got a question about the event or competition? Just email Sam Geddes, Office of the Dean of Students, Deakin University, or Dr Nira Rahman, Teaching Specialist, University of Melbourne.
