Great leaders make more great leaders

Opportunities to learn certainly aren’t confined to the classroom. Throughout your degree, we’ll help you to develop the leadership skills that will make you a vital member of the broader community.

There are many ways you can grow as a leader.

Student Life volunteering

Student Life volunteering is about connecting with the ACU community through activities, helping other students, contributing to campus life, making new friends, improving your English and/or communication skills, connecting with key staff, learning new skills, having fun, enhancing your resume and boosting your employability.

Join a student association

Put your hand up to get involved with one of our student associations, either on your local campus or at the national level.

Student associations are run by students, for students. They provide services, activities and representation on academic affairs, and are a direct way for you to represent and support your peers.
