Exciting changes in the VCLP for 2020!

A new award will be launched soon which will replace Tier 2 of the Vice-Chancellor’s Leadership Program in 2020.  This award will recognise students’ experiences and contributions, both in the professional sphere and in community and civic service.

More information will be released in the coming months regarding these exciting opportunities for development and recognition.
