HASS Leadership Info

The HASS Leadership Program is aimed at students looking to invest in their leadership and employability skill-set. It is a student-staff co-designed and led program offering theoretical and practical experiences in a supported environment. 

The HASS Leadership Program will:

  1. Foster your leadership skills through activities across three key areas - communication, teamwork, and confidence. (Theoretical + Practical)
  2. Facilitate meaningful and long-term peer-to-peer interaction, through cooperative project work and on-going engagement in activities in the broader HASS community. (Practical)
  3. Empower you to start impacting the HASS community (Practical)
So, what does this look like?  

Through the program you will initially engage in cohort wide workshops and gradually shift into smaller team based sessions. The workshops are facilitated and primarily focus on idea generation, skill development, leadership theory and reflection. The team based sessions focus on project implementation. These will be less directed by staff and your opportunity to work together, practice your leadership, and create a project that benefits your peers in the HASS Community. 

How much time do you need to commit?

Throughout the semester students will be required to commit a minimum of 20-25 hours in total. It is difficult to predict time commitments due to the developmental nature of the Leadership Program, particularly the implementation phase as the size and manner in which participants choose to action their project will impact time requirements. 

Completion of this program is eligible to contribute to the UQ Employability Award.
