Students as Partners

At Curtin, it’s vital that students have a voice in decisions that impact the University, and that they engage in and contribute to the university experience. We call this Students as Partners, and it’s part of a formal agreement between Curtin and the Student Guild [.pdf 176KB].

Students as Partners means that wherever possible, staff will consult and collaborate with students, making them partners in decision making processes and empowering them to drive initiatives at the University. Not only does this ensure that your voice is heard, but it can help you develop your leadership and professional skills. It also gives you valuable experience representing your fellow students while contributing to the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals.
