Stand up, stand out and stand proud!

The Hobart recipients with UTAS Vice-Chancellor Professor Peter Rathjen

The Vice-Chancellor's Leadership Award has been presented to a group of UTAS students who have demonstrated determination, dedication and perseverance- and a lot of generosity.

Across a 10 month period the participants complete 40 hours of volunteer work. This is supplemented by their attendance at three seminars per semester. The students are also required to write eight reflective pieces about their experiences and what they have learned throughout the process.

The Vice-Chancellor's Leadership Award was created to educate, challenge and inspire. It is designed to strengthen students’ personal development, work ethic, community awareness, leadership and employability.

UTAS Vice-Chancellor Professor Peter Rathjen congratulated the Award winners and their dedication.

“Leadership matters enormously- you know it when you see it.

“It’s one of the great missions of the university to produce great leaders and generally speaking we have been quite good at it.

“It seems to me there is always something great leaders have in common and it is that people choose to follow them,” Prof Rathjen said.
