The HASS Student Futures Team regularly works with students on a partnership basis, collaborating on events and initiatives that benefit both students and faculty. 

The students as partners approach is based on the core tenets of respect, reciprocity and shared responsiblity. By taking ownership of projects, students develop their skills and employability while providing authentic ideas and fresh skills and perspectives to projects.

Student Partners have organised welcome and induction activities, helped develop a new minor, organised career and cohort-building events, and developed pilot partnership programs, all for HASS students.
