The HASS Leadership Program

The HASS Leadership Program is aimed towards students looking to invest in their leadership and employability skill-set. This is a student-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?  

The program is roughly split into 2 phases. Phase 1 involves peer collaboration and individual reflection through workshops and online modules which will explore leadership theory, idea generation, and facilitated skill development. Phase 2 is the implementation phase where students have the chance to put their learnings into action through working closely with a group to execute their joint project. 

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 phase 2 in which the size and manner in which participants choose to implement their project will impact time requirements. 

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